Several charges for alleged drug offenses and child neglect or endangerment were filed against a Union City woman who was arrested Tuesday night.
Tabatha Ann Chambers, 29, of 1121 South Second St., Union City, was charged with three counts of child neglect or endangerment, as well as possession of a Schedule II controlled substance, possession of a Schedule II controlled substance with intent, possession of drug paraphernalia, promotion of methamphetamine and initiation of process of methamphetamine, according to a Union City Police Department report.
A warrant for her arrest was filed after police served a search warrant Monday night at the South Second Street residence occupied by Ms. Chambers and Jeremy Dewitt Butler, 32. He was arrested Monday night on the same charges as Ms. Chambers, in addition to a charge of possession of marijuana, police reported.
During a search of their home, officers recovered several items used in the manufacture of methamphetamine, in addition to finished meth and a bottle used in the final stages of the manufacturing process.
When the warrant was served, two children — ages 8 and 11 — were present. A 6-year-old also lives at the home but was not there at the time, according to the report.
Ms. Chambers was located Tuesday night hiding in a house at 220 East Gibbs St., Union City, where she was taken into custody, police reported.
