Charges were certified to a grand jury Tuesday against two women arrested in connection with a methamphetamine lab found in a Pulaski apartment in June.
In preliminary hearings in Pulaski County General District Court, attorneys for Teresa White Dillon, 50, of Pulaski and Victoria Willogene Lawrence, 39, of Radford stipulated evidence was sufficient to send the cases to the grand jury. No evidence was presented.
Dillon and Harris were arrested June 21 after police received an anonymous tip that a methamphetamine lab was located at Northside Apartments at 302 N. Washington Ave. A search warrant was obtained when police allegedly detected an odor consistent with an active meth lab while speaking with one of the occupants.
Both women are charged with the distribution, manufacture and possession of methamphetamine, in addition to conspiracy to distribute the drug.
The apartment was one of nine located on the upper floor of the building on the northeast corner of Third Street and Washington Avenue. Due to the potential volatility of such labs, the entire building was evacuated as a precaution until the apartment was cleared of the lab.
