RPD: 6-year-old found in filthy house with drug paraphernalia

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.

RPD bike patrol officers investigating reports of drug activity at an apartment in the 200 block of Geri Lane encountered Embry and Smith as they were leaving the apartment, according to the police report.

The officers reported the men were in possession of items commonly used in the manufacture of methamphetamine, including lithium batteries, Coleman fuel, pseudoephedrine pills, ammonium nitrate and lye. 

Officers then made contact with Willis inside the apartment. The apartment also was occupied by a 6-year-old child under her care.

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
