Two more meth-related arrests made
At least one more arrest has been made for a subject who allegedly supplied a precursor for making methamphetamine to a meth lab that was raided by Washington police and sheriff’s deputies earlier this year.
According to the police log, Courtney Marie Paul, 27, of Wash-ington, was arrested Friday afternoon and charged with possession of pseudoephedrine with intent to manufacture, a Class D felony that can bring up to five years in prison. The log also said that Christina Marie Null, 37, of Washington, was arrested Friday morning and charged with possession of pseudoephedrine with intent to manufacture. Null’s court files were not available this morning.
According to Paul’s court file, her arrest was linked to a March 12 raid on an alleged meth lab at 322 N. D Ave. The report said that meth manufacturing precursors, equipment, and materials were located in the search. The report also said that a significant amount of meth sludge produced from meth manufacturing was located.
“The defendant was identified as one of the individuals providing precursors (pseudoephedrine) to a person manufacturing meth at this location,” the report said.
The report said Paul had provided about 23,760 mg of pseudoephedrine to the location during the year prior to the raid.
Paul was released after Hawkeye Bail Bonds posted a $5,000 bond. Her first court appearance is scheduled for Aug. 7.
On Thursday, Amy Erin Booth, 32 of West Chester; Kolette Christine Daniels, 24, of Washington; and Jeffrey Alan Daniels, 29, of Washington, were arrested on identical charges.
The Washington County Narcotics Task Force raided a building at 322 North D Avenue in Washington on March 12. Michael Joe Miller, 39, of Washington, and Jeffrey Michael Marie, 30, of Washington, were arrested 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 North D Avenue. 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.
