The Macon County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday, April 29 charged Sherrie Lynn Chapman, 48, with, in addition to violating probation, manufacturing of narcotics Schedule II, meth precursor, possession of Schedule II narcotics and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Bond was set at $150,000.
MCSO K-9 Dep. Donnie Crawford, K-9 partner Rock and Sgt. Ira Meador accompanied Tammy Wright, a state probation officer, to Chapman’s residence, located at 2024 Carter Branch Road.
It was a home visit, and Wright performed a drug screening on Chapman.
“She has the right to go in and drug screen them at any time,” Crawford said of the state probation officer.
Chapman failed the screening.
“When she tested positive for methamphetamine, we started talking to her,” Crawford said. “She advised us that she had a little bit of methamphetamine at the residence. We located it.”
That wasn’t all Chapman had in the residence, authorities said.
Upon further questioning, it was learned that Chapman also was in possession of four “shake and bakes.”
What’s a shake and bake?
“It’s where they take a two-liter bottle and put all their (meth-making) ingredients in that and shake it up,” Crawford said. “It makes their meth.”
Three shake and bakes were located in the kitchen under the sink, and the fourth was located in Chapman’s bedroom.
“We then asked her if there was anything else,” Crawford said. “We asked her where all her ingredients were.”
At that point, Crawford said, Chapman showed officers a black bag containing fertilizer, batteries, Draino and other meth-making items.
