Mother, daughter charged for manufacturing meth | News
(WMC-TV) - A mother and daughter were charged for putting their neighbors in danger after an apartment complex meth bust.
The mother, Shannon Garner, is property manager at Faronia Square Town Homes in Whitehaven. Garner and her daughter, Shelby, are charged with promotion of Methamphetamine manufacturing.
Residents are shocked. They say Shannon is setting a bad example for the apartment complex.
Angela Crawley says she called police when she noticed someone broke into a nearby townhouse in July. Police showed up and found something else; two guys were cooking meth in the townhouse.
"[Police] said they ran upstairs tried to lock themselves in the bathroom," said Crawley.
Both men got away.
"I just saw a couple of police officers come out the door. There's a chemical ... Something about a chemical," said neighbor Raffeal Keys.
Police say Shannon gave two men the key to the townhouse a few hours before police showed up. Police checked a database and discovered Garner made excessive purchases of pseudoephedrine, which is used to make meth.
Shannon and Shelby Garner were arrested Friday.
Police say Shelby Garner admitted trading pseudoephedrine for meth. The two guys suspected of cooking the meth have not been named or charged.
