A Ray County man who called law enforcement to his home for a domestic disturbance is among three residents charged in federal court for their roles in a conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine.

Anthony Trurice Grayson, 29, Glenn Allen DiFalco, 50, and Clarissa Nelson Cooper, 44, all residing at Grayson’s rural Ray County home, were charged in a federal criminal complaint filed in the U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Mo. July 22.

The criminal complaint alleges that DiFalco, Grayson and Cooper participated in a conspiracy to manufacture 50 grams or more of methamphetamine.

In all, officers recovered 3,214 grams of pseudoephedrine hydrochloride – a key ingredient in making methamphetamine – and 53.2 grams of a substance that field-tested as methamphetamine in the suspects’ possession. Ray County Chief Deputy Brian Bush, who was involved in the case, said the quantity moved it to the federal level.
