An occupant of the house, Matthew L. Green, 40, was arrested that day on unrelated warrants.
On Saturday, city police said, Green was at it again, cooking meth in the same westside house. That night, 911 dispatchers received a complaint about a “strong chemical odor” coming from the home, a report said.
An officer reported seeing a “one-pot” lab and a generator in the house’s basement.
When police arrived, Kristina Gayle Green, 40, emerged from the house and was taken into custody. She said Matthew Green was refusing to come outside, although he did a short time later.
State police were called back to the Charles Street house for another cleanup operation.
Kristina Green – arrested Feb. 27 after she was found with meth outside a fast-food restaurant – told police Saturday night that she ingested meth each day, and would only use meth that had been “cooked” by Matthew.
She also said he manufactured the drug nearly every day. (Police reports did not specify the status of the Greens’ relationship. Court records indicate they divorced in 2010.)
Both Greens were arrested early Sunday on preliminary charges of manufacturing meth. Matthew Green remained in the Delaware County jail on Monday under a $20,000 bond. Kristina Green’s bond was set at $10,000.
Matthew Green’s criminal record includes convictions for theft, receiving stolen property and driving after a lifetime suspension.
