A tip from another law enforcement agency Monday led Bulloch County Drug Suppression Team agents to arrest three Register women on methamphetamine charges.
After receiving information that methamphetamine was possibly being manufactured at an Anderson Road home in Register, members of the drug suppression team responded to the home around 1:30 p.m. Monday and obtained consent to search the premises, sheriff’s Capt. Rick Rountree said.
After finding evidence including components to make meth as well as a quantity of methamphetamine, which agents seized, three women living at the residence were arrested and taken to the Bulloch County Jail.
Cindel Monique Albaugh, 23, was charged with trafficking in methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine and first-degree cruelty to children. There were two children, one 2 years old and the other 3 months old, living in the home where the meth and ingredients for making meth were found, Rountree said.
Rachel Elaine Fowler, 32, and Stacie Ann Piazzi, 33, were each charged with felony theft by receiving stolen property, trafficking in methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine and first-degree cruelty to children.
The theft charges stemmed from a stolen four-wheeler found on the premises, Rountree said.
The women were taken to the Bulloch County Jail, where they remained Tuesday awaiting further court hearings, he said.
The case is unrelated to an incident Saturday where Statesboro police arrested a St. James Apartments woman on methamphetamine charges.
After police, acting on a tip, discovered a quantity of methamphetamine and components of a meth lab, they charged Jessica Ann Jernigan, 20, Lanier Drive, with possession of a schedule II controlled substance (methamphetamine); manufacturing a controlled substance (methamphetamine); possession of a schedule IV narcotic; possession of a drug related object and giving false information.
