A 34-year-old Missouri woman is facing serious legal consequences after allegedly allowing her friends to cook drugs in a home that belongs to her neighbors. News reports indicate that the woman was pet-sitting and house-sitting for her neighbors, who had left on a vacation. Police officers say that the woman's friends left behind an enormous environmental mess that could cost more than $37,000 to remedy. The woman is accused of a felony offense in connection with the methamphetamine production incident.
Official reports show that the woman, also accused of using methamphetamine herself, is accused of first-degree property damage in connection with the case. The alleged offense occurred in September 2013, when the woman was given the key to her neighbor's house so she could watch their home and cat. The woman admitted that she purchased ingredients used in the production of methamphetamine, and she then allowed her friends to cook the drugs in the home. She said she agreed to allow her friends to use the home in exchange for a share of the meth.
