In addition to being charged with conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine, one man has additionally been charged with possession of methamphetamine as well as sodium hydroxide and petroleum distillates, ingredients used to produce methamphetamine. These materials were supposedly not used in the Taco Bell kitchen.

The franchisee who owns the Taco Bell location is reportedly considering pressing criminal charges against the men who were arrested and has fired the employee in question.

The restaurant will reopen after inspection by the Health Department.
