RICHMOND — Richmond police charged Patrick Ryan Embry, 24, Geri Lane; Ashley L. Willis, 24, Geri Lane; and Shaun Douglas Smith, 32, Hager Drive, with drug and other offenses after investigating a complaint Thursday.

During a check of the residence, officers found syringes in a pouch on the sofa and lose on the floor, the report stated. The officers reported that bent metal spoons with suspected drug residue were on a small table in the living room. 

A bottle of Liquid Fire drain treatment and cold packs, items often used to make methamphetamine, were found in the kitchen, according to the report.

Officers reported the conditions in the apartment were unfit for habitation by a child. In addition to the drug paraphernalia lying about, officers said they saw dirty dishes, rotting food, soiled laundry and other debris throughout the residence.

A representative of social services was summoned to the scene, and the child was placed with a relative.

Embry was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana. Smith was charged with unlawful distribution of methamphetamine precursors, and Willis was charged with second-degree wanton endangerment and possession of drug paraphernalia.

All three were taken to the Madison County Detention Center
