Two women charged with making meth in Turpin Drive apartment

RICHMOND — Two women were charged Tuesday with manufacturing methamphetamine in a Turpin Drive apartment.

Alison N. Sloas, 25, and Rebecca J. Henry, 38, were arrested after Richmond police responded at 11:45 a.m. to a complaint of a strong chemical odor in the neighborhood, according to an RPD news release.

When they arrived, the officers located the apartment that the odor appeared to be coming from, the release stated.

Sloas and Henry were in the home and were identified as the residents.

A search of the apartment produced an active methamphetamine lab along with precursor chemicals and equipment used in the making of the drug, the RPD said.

The RPD’s lab clean-up team rendered the materials safe and removed the hazardous items from the site.

Laptop computer stolen

A visitor to the 500 block of Ballard Drive reported Tuesday that a Toshiba laptop computer had been stolen from her unlocked vehicle during the afternoon. The computer is worth $300.

Anyone with information about these cases is asked to call the Richmond Police Department at 623-1162.
