Comments Off on Bristol couple accused of cooking meth arrested, charged

A couple that left what police said was an active methamphetamine laboratory in Bristol yesterday is in custody and scheduled for arraignment this afternoon, Bristol police Chief Michael Lewis said today.

Cheryl Fisher, 53, and Christopher Corum, 36, were arrested “without incident” around noon today on the Bristol-Bridgewater line, Lewis said. Each is scheduled to be arraigned at the district court in Plymouth this afternoon, he said. Each faces two charges, one of possession of methamphetamine and one of manufacturing methamphetamine, Lewish said. Both are felony charges.

Fisher and Corum will also face federal charges brought by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, Lewis said.

The couple left their Bristol apartment right before police arrived around 4 p.m yesterday, Lewis said.

The police had gotten a tip that there could be a methamphetamine lab at 229 Pleasant St., Lewis said. After police arrived and began to clear the area, they called in members of the DEA drug task force, the New Hampshire state police and the fire department as well.

The four apartment units at 229 Pleasant St. were evacuated right away, Lewis said, as were three surrounding homes. It took about eight hours for officers to secure the scene and gather evidence, he said.

The state police defused the single pot of methamphetamine that was cooking in the apartment, Lewis said.

“It’s all done by chemical reaction, which is why it’s so dangerous,” he said.

Fisher and Corum had initially been considered armed and dangerous but police found no weapon when they arrested the couple.
