Three arrested for possession of pseudoephedrine
Three people turned themselves in to police Thursday on warrants for possession of pseudoephedrine with intent to manufacture. They are being held under $5,000 bond.
According to court records, Amy Erin Booth, 32, of West Chester, Kolette Christine Daniels, 24, of Washington, and Jeffrey Alan Daniels, 29, of Washington, each face one charge of possession of pseudoephedrine with intent to manufacture, a Class D felony that can bring up to five years in prison. The reports say that the arrests were in reference to an earlier raid of a methamphetamine lab in Washington.
Court records say that on March 12 a search warrant was executed at 322 N. D Ave. in Washington. At this time, Jeffrey Marie was arrested for conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine. During the search, officers found numerous items used in the manufacture of meth. Booth, Jeffrey Daniels and Kolette Daniels have all been identified as people providing the pseudoephedrine precursor to Marie.
Records say that Booth provided 23,040 mg of pseudoephedrine, which is found in cold pills, to Marie, and more than 21 grams of meth could be made from this.
The records also said that Jeffrey and Kolette Daniels provided 14,400 mg of pseudoephedrine to Marie from January to March of this year. The report said more than 13 grams of meth would have been produced from that amount.
The Washington County Narcotics Task Force raided a building at 322 N. D Ave. in Washington on March 12. Michael Joe Miller, 39, of Washington, and Jeffrey Michael Marie, 30, of Washington, were arrested Tuesday morning and charged with conspiracy to manufacture more than five grams of methamphetamine, a Class B felony punishable by 25 years in prison with a minimum fine of $5,000 and a maximum fine of $100,000.
According to a press release, local law enforcement officials executed a search warrant on the building and located a meth lab. The building has been closed due to hazardous contamination conditions from meth residue. A second search warrant was also executed at a property in the 2930 Quince Avenue in Washington.
According to court records, Miller and Marie occupy the building at 322 N. D Ave. Both were present when the warrant was executed. The records say that many items used in the manufacture of amphetamine, including camp fuel, lithium batteries, cold packs, lye, drain cleaner, pseudoephedrine tablets, funnels, measuring cups, and coffee filters were found on the premises. Items used in meth distribution, including digital scales and packaging materials, were also located. Methamphetamine was also found during the search.
