Couple arrested on meth charges
Newel Jerome Turner Jr., 37, and Angelina Denise Turner, 46, from Madison County, were arrested Thursday, according to a news release.
They were charged with promotion of methamphetamine manufacture, felony possession of drug paraphernalia and simple possession of methamphetamine.
Both will be arraigned in Madison County General Sessions Court.
On Thursday, officers went to the Turners’ home at 4569 Steam Mill Ferry Road in southwest Madison County to arrest the Turners on outstanding warrants for manufacturing methamphetamine, a news release said.
When the officers entered the residence, a small amount of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia were seen in plain view. Investigators from the Jackson-Madison County Metro Narcotics Unit were summoned to the scene and permission was obtained from the Turners to search the remainder of the property, the release said. The search revealed chemical reagents and equipment used to manufacture methamphetamine. Since the materials found were not mixed together in a common container, a hazardous materials clean-up was not necessary.
The items were collected as evidence, and the Turners were taken to the Madison County Criminal Justice Complex.
