Woman arrested after several meth labs found in home near Hartselle elementary school
HARTSELLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Morgan County Sheriff Ana Franklin tells WHNT News 19 a woman is in cuffs after a search warrant yielded multiple meth labs.
“We made entry around 2:30,” said Sheriff Franklin. “We located 8-10 individual meth labs. We already had a warrant for [Burns] for manufacturing from a lab located at that same residence earlier. She is in custody.”
Franklin says Burns is charged with two counts of unlawful manufacturing of a controlled substance and one charge of drug child endangerment.
“She has a ten year old daughter that lives there, she has shared custody,” the Sheriff explained. “The child was not home when we made entry, a family member picked her up from school. DHR has been contacted, they’ll be doing a health evaluation.”
Burns’ bond has been set at $170,000.
