Tuesday, April 10, 2012
Four Stoutland residents have been charged after a search of their home yielded methamphetamine lab equipment and ingredients.
Charged were Sharon Peterson, 51; Timothy Chase, 32; William Peterson Jr., 55; and Kayla Campbell, 28.
Each was charged with three counts: first-degree trafficking, a Class A felony; endangering the welfare of a child, a Class C felony; and possession of drug paraphernalia, a Class A misdemeanor.
Three children were removed from the home and placed in custody of the Division of Social Services.
All four adults are being held in the Camden County jail in lieu of $150,000 bond.
On Thursday, the Camden County Sheriff’s Office, Lake Area Narcotics Enforcement Group and the Missouri Highway Patrol served a search warrant at the home, some 20 miles southeast of Camdenton.
They found more than 90 grams of meth oil, nine one-pot meth labs, seven glass jars containing meth oil, eight two-liter bottles of meth oil, and several other meth items.
