Police find meth materials outside Whitewater home; three arrested
Three women were arrested after law enforcement officers discovered materials for making methamphetamine outside a Whitewater home.
Sally Jane Smith, 44, and Kelly Ann Cyr, 50, were in Mesa County Jail on Saturday on suspicion of meth production and drug possession. Lisa Lambert, 43, was arrested on a separate warrant after officers from the Western Colorado Drug Task Force executed a search warrant at 2945 Kannah Creek Road.
Cyr and Smith live in the Whitewater home where the meth materials were found. Lambert lives at 100 Whiting Road in Whitewater, police said.
According to an arrest affidavit, officers discovered items for making meth outside the home, including Heet bottles, acetone, coffee filters and some bottled remains of the byproducts of cooking meth.
Officers also found a digital scale, small amounts of meth and drug paraphernalia, including a box of hypodermic needles and multiple drug pipes, throughout the home, the affidavit said.
Cyr told police that someone, whose name was redacted from the affidavit, manufactured the drug outside the home because Smith did not allow him to do it inside.
Mesa County Sheriff’s Department investigator Chuck Warner said he could not release that person’s name because he hadn’t been arrested.
Deputies were in the area Friday night responding to another call when they noticed the meth-making materials outside the home and obtained a search warrant, Warner said.
The amount of meth being produced at the home or how long the lab was in operation has not been determined, he said.
