BALLSTON SPA, N.Y. – A Greenfield woman was sentenced Friday for possession of meth.
Megan Howell was sentenced to four years in State Prison and two years of post-release supervision as a result of her guilty plea to Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the Third Degree.
The plea and sentence stems from an October 2013 incident in the Town of Greenfield where Howell and two others were found in possession of methamphetamines as well as materials that are typically used to manufacture the drug meth.
The materials and meth were discovered in the mobile home she was living in at the time based on a tip provided to the New York State Police at Wilton, Community Narcotics Enforcement Team and Contaminated Crime Scene Emergency Response Team officers.
Law enforcement officers responded to the scene and discovered the substances and materials. They took the occupants into custody and gathered evidence from the crime scene.
Two children were also in the home at the time. One was less than one-year-old, and the other was a teenage boy. CPS was notified and took appropriate action regarding the children.
Co-defendants Marlinea South and Bruce Tyler have already entered guilty pleas to their respective charges, and South is scheduled to be sentenced on March 31.
