Lancelot Lipe's Accused of Running a Meth Lab in His Sun City Home -- With Three Kids

Lancelot Lipe raised three kids and allegedly managed a meth lab in the same Sun City house.
On April 22, Maricopa County Sheriff's deputies went to the Sun City home of Lancelot Lipe after receiving anonymous calls about a fire burning at his place.

According to court documents obtained by New Times, Lipe, 29, didn't want the cops there, as he gave deputies a good ol' "fuck you" when they asked for ID, slammed a deputy's foot in the door, and refused to help put out the fire before the deputies left because of "availability of resources."

The Sheriff's Office found out a week later why it all happened -- Lipe allegedly was running a meth lab in the house, which also was home to his wife and three kids.

The Sheriff's Office apparently had a good enough "availability of resources" Monday, when deputies went to arrest Lipe on a charge of assaulting a police officer and made a rare sighting for Sun City: a meth lab, according to the court documents.

When detectives entered the house, they were "overwhelmed by a strong chemical odor . . . that immediately caused a burning sensation to both the eyes and throat[,] which caused detectives to immediately leave the area for health and safety reasons," according to the court documents.

Turns out, according to a statement by another deputy, the room that the three youngsters lived in was "very close" to where the meth kitchen was found.

Naturally, deputies asked Lipe what was up with the whole meth-lab-in-the-garage thing.

According to the court documents, Lipe said it was his friend's. Lipe told police his friend owed him $2,500, so he let him play meth chef in his garage.

Among the items found in the house were a glass cooking vessel, jugs of acid, other chemicals for meth cookery, as well as meth pipes, other drug paraphernalia, and, of course, meth itself, according to the documents.

Lipe allegedly told police his meth-cooking friend had been over at 6 a.m. on Monday to work on meth-making, and the kiddos didn't leave the house with their mother until 10 a.m. Thus, investigators believe it's possible the youngsters could have been exposed to meth-cooking fumes for four hours Monday.

Brenda Lipe, who hasn't smoked meth for a "very long time" -- like, since a few hours before she was arrested, according to police.
Lipe's wife, Brenda Lipe, came home with the kids as deputies dealt with the meth situation at the house.

More meth and a meth pipe were found in Brenda Lipe's truck, but she told police she hadn't used any drugs for a "very long time," according to the documents. In a later interview with a child crimes detective, the Sheriff's Office discovered a "very long time" actually meant she had smoked meth earlier that day, according to the documents.

Brenda Lipe was booked into jail on three counts of child abuse, and one count each of dangerous drug possession and a dangerous-drug violation charge.

Her husband, on the other hand -- who has prior convictions for forgery, armed robbery, and possession of a weapon by a prohibited person -- faces a few more charges.

Lancelot Lipe is facing charges of aggravated assault on a police officer, obstructing government operations, disobeying a fire control order, obstruction, possessing dangerous drug equipment for manufacturing,. dangerous drug possession, drug paraphernalia possession, and child abuse.

The children, as you can imagine, were taken by Child Protective Services.

Hi This is Lancelot William Lipe the accused! I am on here to state it is bullshit that a cop is assaulted allegedly then flees to get back up to a week later arrest the big bad wolf?? Likely story! Cops came asked if they could come in I said no! Because no one was dressed! They asked for ID and I said I would retrieve it from inside i turned and my door was kicked open behind me causing the door to hit me in the back! I spun around to elbow it closed in the process supposedly closing the cops foot in it??? Hmmmm! here you go the week later they return stating that those arrest-able offenses?? They let me free !!!! "I changed my mind"the cop said in my yard as he detained me. Then his buddies opened my door illegally entering my home Claiming to be locking it up for me! Ill save the rest for my court case and civil suit. Be safe out there and dont let your self be bullied by those who are supposed to serve and protect you!

the police may have made a mistake but you did it, you even told them you were running a lab so while you may get off because of their errors does not mean you are innocent, you two are disgusting and what you did to your kids is horrible, the cops had every right to go in their when they went to lock up and their eyes started burning from the meth you were cooking, thank god they went in and did not leave it bubbling while they took your gross ugly face to jail or it would have blown up and killed all of us neighbors

While the two adults are scum, how is it "Assaulting  an Officer" when  the  officer was was attempting  unauthorized entry  If his foot was in the  door he was attempting  to enter without permission or a warrant which is a big no no in non emergency situations.  It will be interesting to see how this plays out in court since it appears that the  Warrant for arrest was factually in error

It is NOT a big no no when there is a fire burning in the backyard, then they have justifiable cause to get to that fire for the safety of the neighborhood

A complimentary tubal ligation and vasectomy should be required before letting that pair out onto the streets again.

This simply can't be true.

The MCSO shurf has been telling Sun City folks for the past 19 years that all crimes in Sun City are committed by undocumented workers from foreign countries.

Yet, I will guess Lancelot and his lovely bride are actually home born children with home grown anchors attached to their home grown asses.

So, MCSO goes there on the 22nd on report of a fire and gets shoved away by Sir Lancelot.

Then, a week later they go back to find a meth lab stinking up the neighborhood.

Odd. Very odd...

Sir Lancelot may be an up and coming Arizona Republican...

That would explain a lot.

 The following is from the Sun City website:

Can individuals under 55 years of age purchase a home in Sun City?  Yes, individuals under 55 years of age can purchase homes in Sun City. However, they may only live in the home if they are at least 19 years of age and so long as another individual who is at least 55 years of age also lives in the home, such as a spouse or relative. No one under 19 years of age may live in a Sun City residence.

 You dont get rich cooking small amounts of meth. you smoke or snort it up when you cook a small quantity of speed like that. big meth labs make 10+ pounds a week in mexico. thats how you get rich on meth. not at a gram a week.

Its way way easier to just buy mexican imported crank or locally cooked hells angels {angel crank}  on the street than it is to cook it at home. a guy like this can only cook about a gram at a time its hardly worth the effort and the prison time you get when you get pinched for being a crank cooker and being in possession of it. next time just buy it from your local crank dealer. if you aint cooking a pound of crank at a time your wasting your time and the cops time. there is no profit $$ in it at all at those small amounts like a gram or two.
