Comments Off on Woman faces 7 charges after meth raid on Allen County home

A 31-year-old Allen County woman has been charged with six felonies and a misdemeanor related to making methamphetamine.

Jodi M. Shawver, of the 14400 block of Yellow River Road, was arrested last week after a raid on her home. A Fort Wayne Police investigator noticed in October that a man reportedly in the same household with Shawver had purchased large amounts of pseudoephedrine several times in the preceding months and had been blocked from purchasing drugs containing that precursor to meth on several occasions.

This year, he and other officers began keeping a closer eye on her residence and reportedly saw several indications that meth might be manufactured there. They also learned that she had purchased psuedoephedrine 38 times since Jan. 1 and had been blocked from purchasing it four times, according to court documents.

When police searched her home March 27, they reported finding roughly 3 grams of meth, as well as equipment, supplies and litter that are commonly associated with production of meth.

Two children lived in the home with her. Two other adults, whose names were mentioned prominently in the account of the investigation, were not present at the Yellow River Road residence when police searched it.

She is charged with dealing in methamphetamine, a Class B felony; neglect of a dependent, a Class C felony; possession of methamphetamine, possession or reagents or precursors to make methamphetamine and dumping controlled substance waste, all Class D felonies; and possession of paraphernalia, a Class A misdemeanor.
