      Moberly police arrest man for meth production

      A Moberly man accused of posessing and manufacturing meth is behind bars.

      Moberly authorities have charged Clifford Ball, 32, with possession and manufacturing meth and maintaining a public nuisance.

      Police answered a call Thursday from a man who said he was threatened with a firearm at a home on Myra Street.

      When officers showed up they found a meth lab as Ball tried to throw out one of the active ingredients.

      Ball is also accused of breaking a window in the jail, apparently to escape.

      He's locked up on a $15,000 bond.
