Residence search leads to meth arrests
A Washington woman faces charges of possession of pseudoephedrine with intent to manufacture meth, a Class D felony, after a search warrant allegedly turned up items used in making meth.
Melissa Dawn Lonski, 30, of Washington, was released on $1,000 bond after her first appearance in court Wednesday. Her preliminary hearing on the charge will be at 11 a.m. Oct. 16.
According to court records, a search was conducted on a residence at 1453 315th St. in Brighton. Although Lonski’s address is listed as being in Washington, the record said that she had been living at the Brighton residence on and off since February.
Court records say that during the search, items for meth manufacture were located. The items listed included pseudoephedrine pills, lithium batteries, instant cold packs, lye, camping fuel, drain cleaner and salt. The records also said that Lonski told police she had been buying pseudoephedrine pills and providing them to individuals who were using the pills to manufacture meth. The report said that during this time Lonski purchased at least 17,280 mg of pseudoephedrine for meth manufacture.
Today’s police log shows that Frankie Melissa Fulford, 38, of Brighton, was arrested Wednesday morning for conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine. Her address was listed as 1453 315th Street in Brighton. Her court records were not available prior to press time.
