A Morgan County resident has been arrested on methamphetamine charges for the fourth time this year.

Forty-three-year-old James Fanning of Franklin was arrested at his residence at around 11 p-m last night by Morgan County Deputies.

Fanning was booked at the Morgan County Jail for participation in methamphetamine manufacturing, possession of meth-manufacturing material, use of property to violate the Meth Control Act, possession of a narcotic instrument and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Fanning was one of eight people arrested in connection with an alleged meth lab in northeast Jacksonville. He’s since been arrested on felony drug charges related to possession of meth and materials to make the drug two other times prior to yesterday’s apprehension.

Fanning remains in custody.
