Sacramento County Sheriff's investigators have removed methamphetamine-making materials from the Citrus Heights apartment of Charles Gilbert Demar III, who was detained Wednesday in connection with the killing of skinhead leader David Lynch and later arrested on unrelated charges, a sheriff's spokesman said.
Citrus Heights police served a warrant Thursday morning at the apartment in the 7700 block of Greenback Lane and discovered the materials, said Deputy Jason Ramos, sheriff's spokesman. Sheriff's investigators were called in, and they found undisclosed amounts of all materials needed to make methamphetamine, Ramos said.
Ramos could not confirm whether methamphetamine was found in the apartment.
Demar was detained Wednesday afternoon as a person of interest in Lynch's killing. Lynch, 40, was found dead inside his Citrus Heights home early Wednesday morning with gunshot wounds to his head and torso. A 33-year-old woman was also found with a bullet wound to the leg.
According to a Citrus Heights Police Department release, "CHPD detectives spoke with (Demar) and, as a result, did not arrest him for the homicide. In an unrelated event, CHPD detectives arrested Mr. Demar for narcotics-related charges and subsequently booked him into Sacramento jail on those charges."
Demar was booked on drug and gang charges and is being held in lieu of $1 million bail.
