Woman found at meth lab indicted on several warrants

RICHMOND — A Congleton Lane woman police said was found during an August meth-lab bust was indicted Wednesday by a Madison County grand jury.

Misty L. Daniels, 29, was indicted on charges of receiving stolen property, theft by deception and second-degree persistent felony offender. The persistent felon charge enhances all her aforementioned charges to Class C felonies, each punishable by a maximum of 10 years in prison.

Daniels was found in a mid-August meth-lab raid on West Kentucky Avenue, according to a Richmond Police report. It was then when police discovered she had multiple warrants out for her arrest, RPD Chief Larry Brock said.

She was not charged in connection with the meth-making operation, which led to the arrest of James M. Jones, 39, who tried to flee on foot while officers attempted to secure the residence, according to the police report. He was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, second-degree fleeing or evading police and resisting arrest. Jones has yet to be indicted.

If convicted on all charges, Daniels could serve up to 30 years in prison.

Other indictments:

• Brandon Bedore, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, trafficking in marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance. If convicted, Bedore could serve a maximum of 17 years in prison.

• Joshua L. McDowell, receiving stolen property and second-degree persistent felony offender. If convicted, McDowell could serve up to 20 years in prison.

• Konrad Hayes, second-degree burglary. If convicted, Hayes could serve up to 10 years in prison.

• Timothy L. Horn, three counts of second-degree burglary, two counts of theft by deception and second-degree persistent felony offender. If convicted on each count of all charges, Horn could serve up to 52 years in prison.

• Melissa Bishop, theft by unlawful taking over $500. If convicted, Bishop could serve up to five years in prison.

• Melissa A. Smith and Samuel Ven Geames, flagrant nonsupport. If convicted, both could serve a maximum of five years in prison.

An indictment is a formal statement of charges and does not imply guilt, only that grand jurors believe the state has enough evidence to proceed with prosecution.
