Sonny Clay HyattCALDWELL COUNTY, NC – Three men have been arrested for making meth after one of them called 911 claiming he got lost in the woods while searching for paranormal activity.

Police say they received a call Monday night from 39-year-old Sonny Clay Hyatt. He told them he and his friends had been out investigating ghost stories in the woods when they got separated. Hyatt told the dispatch that he was now lost in the woods and needed help getting out.

Deputies ended up using Hyatt’s cell phone signal to track him down, but his story just didn’t sound right. After further questioning, Hyatt admitted that he and his two friends, 38-year-old Thomas Glenn Imler Jr. and 31-year-old Eric John Schmidt, weren’t in the woods looking for spooky ghosts – they were in the woods to make sweet, sweet meth.

Wyatt told them that they had gone into the woods to make meth because they were too afraid to do it in their apartment. The three got into an argument when their cook failed, and his two friends left him in the woods and made it safely back to their apartment.

Deputies allegedly found evidence of their outdoor meth lab, including the chemicals to make the drug inside the men’s apartment. The three men were each charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and possession of methamphetamine precursor chemicals. They are being held in the Caldwell County Detention Center on $50,000 bonds, where I can only imagine they are the butt of many jokes.

  • Kittyskyfish

    Great. Between you and BearsBluff, now I have Ray Parker Jr. “Methbusters” running through my head. Some of the lyrics strangely suggest drug use…

    Mmm, if you’ve had a dose
    Of a freaky ghost crank baby
    You better call
    (Ghost Methbusters!)

    Let me tell you somethin’
    Bustin’ makes me feel good

  • Jessie

    Look, I can see the guy grinding his methed-out teeth in the pic! What a dumbass.

  • Buffettgirl

    Why for the love of Pete would you call the cops you freakin’ moron??? Oh, right, because you’re a moron, got it…

  • Why am I not surprised??? Oh, that’s right, because I have been a Minion for many years now!

  • Those ghosts were real, dude!

  • newstarshipsmell

    Sounds like there was some parasentient activity taking place in the woods.

  • omnibot

    Of all the reasons to call the 5-0 and say “I’m lost in the woods,” this dude went with ghost hunting. Apparently the spooky ghost also scared all of the hair from his body. Oh, meth. You do such wonderful things to the mind.


  • Jessica Stewart

    This is why you never betray the people you are performing illegal activities with, because they may just be just smart enough to save their own ass and just stupid enough to get you all caught. Or y’know don’t do FUCKIN’ Meth. in the words of Denis Leary: “You know, that cocaine’s pretty good, but I want something that makes my heart explode as soon as I smoke it, ok? I want to take one suck off that pipe and go *snort* *splat* Now I’m happy! I’m dead, the ultimate high!”

  • sugarpie

    How could you mess up a lost in the woods story. You don’t even have to give them a reason when your lost in the woods for heaven sakes. “Hey I’m lost, can you help me??” is all they need. You don’t even need to follow that up with “well the real reason I’m here is”… I’m sure his friends won’t forget this oopsy for awhile.

  • Are you cooking Meth? Nope, looking for ghosts, man. Just looking for the ghosts that scared me away from my meth-lab over there…

  • glitterpuss

    Why do all tweakers look alike

  • JohnQknowitall

    Hmmmm…. Wouldn’t calling your friends and telling them of your intentions to call the police if they don’t come back and help you out of the woods be a better idea?

  • JohnQknowitall

    Oh you little breath of sunshine… my heart is warmed. 🙂

  • CT

    Kiss ass. You are good. Keep up the good work.

  • CatAtonic99

    Bein a tweaker, couldn’t he find some way to “MacGyver” his own ass out
    of the woods? (or at least have the energy to walk 3 days straight in
    one direction until he finally made it to civilization)

  • Neon_Gonorrhea

    Stupid is as stupid does. Being an idiot is probably also the very thing that got him left in the woods to begin with.

  • Abroad

    You don’t think they might decide he was better left out there? Under four feet of dirt?

  • LeaveMeBe

    Just how difficult is it to cook meth? Surely there is a recipe and if you follow it you will end up with well cooked meth. Buncha morons, read the directions!

  • LeaveMeBe


  • sweekymom

    This is why you don’t make meth in the woods. You make it in the desert, with a guy who calls himself Heisenberg.

  • JGo555

    But, his face!? Meth? Nah!

  • IntelligentVirtue

    I was just thinking the same thing. I can’t believe this idiot voluntarily ratted himself out.
