Women indicted on meth-making charges

RICHMOND — A Madison grand jury indicted two women last week on a charge of making methamphetamine in their Turpin Drive apartment.

Richmond police arrested Alison N. Sloas, 25, and Rebecca J. Henry, 38, after they received a complaint April 2 about a strong chemical odor in the neighborhood, according to an RPD news release.

When they arrived, the officers pinpointed the apartment that the odor appeared to originate, the release stated.

Sloas and Henry were in the home and were identified as the residents, police said.

The officers reported finding an active methamphetamine lab in the apartment along with precursor chemicals and equipment used in the making of the drug.

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

Manufacturing methamphetamine is a Class B felony, which carries a sentence of 10 to 20 years in prison.

Others indicted last week and their charges were:

• James W. Weaver Jr, first-degree bail jumping

• Rodney E. Martin, first-degree possession of a controlled substance

• Shawn L. Lear, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance

• George E. Rowland Jr. and David Bailey, first-degree possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia

• Paul W. Roden, first-degree possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana

• Paul D. Cox, first-degree possession of a controlled substance, second-degree possession of a controlled substance, third-degree possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia

• Allison Nicole Sloas and Rebecca Jane Henry, manufacturing methamphetamine

• Michael G. Fish, first-degree possession of a controlled substance, third-degree possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Several traffic-related charges against Fish were referred to Madison District Court.

• Heather N. King, two counts of first-degree possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting arrest and operating a motor vehicle on a suspended license

• Paul G. Knox, possession of a handgun, tampering with physical evidence and third-degree possession of a controlled substance. Two traffic-related charges against Knox were referred to Madison District Court.

Misdemeanor indictment

Terry D. Mallory, second-degree criminal conspiracy to promote contraband.

Grand jury indictments do not indicate guilt, only that grand jurors believe the state has enough evidence to proceed with prosecution.
