Three women held in meth investigation
The Start Press, Jan 21, 2016
NEW CASTLE – Three New Castle women were arrested on meth-related charges Wednesday night, when state police raided their mobile home.
Amber Nicole Davis, 30, and Dawn Marie Heath, 45, remained in the Henry County jail on Thursday evening. Co-defendant Amy L. York, 38, had apparently been released on bond.
Authorities said the woman were taken into custody in their home, in the 500 block of West Terry Drive, about 9 p.m.
According to police reports, an investigation of Davis’ activities began in early December, after she purchased materials frequently used in meth “cooking,” including pseudoephedrine and camp fuel, at local businesses.
Troopers at the mobile home reported smelling an odor associated with meth "cooking", and said they found methamphetamine and numerous materials and devices used in its production in the trailer.
Henry County Prosecutor Joe Bergacs’ office on Thursday charged all three women with dealing in meth, possession of meth, possession of precursors, maintaining a common nuisance, unlawful possession of a syringe and possession of paraphernalia.
Heath, formerly of Muncie, has been convicted of possession of meth and burglary.
Davis, a former Richmond resident, has at least three theft convictions.
