Effingham County Sheriff's deputies have arrested a man wanted on several methamphetamine related charges. Richard Myrick, 25, of Springfield, was taken into custody today by Effingham County deputies after a month long search.

Myrick ran from deputies in April after a patrol deputy observed a suspicious vehicle in the 6000 block of Clyo Kildare Road. Two other suspects, Jessica Greene, 27, of Springfield, and Johnathan Sheffield, 24, of Sylvania, were arrested on the scene on methamphetamine related charges. Deputies located a meth lab along with other drug related objects during the investigative stop in April.

Myrick is now being held in the Effingham County Jail without bond.
