Four people face charges in connection with methamphetamine manufacturing in Anderson.

Michelle Rich, 31, William Aynes, 38, Melissa Hamilton, 35 and Heather Bovie, 31, all from Anderson, were arrested in a drug raid last Thursday. All of them face charges ranging from manufacturing and possessing meth to running an illegal drug lab.

Officers got a tip that Aynes was cooking meth at a home in the 1000 block of Alhambra Drive. They found material and components used to make meth, along with paraphernalia used to smoke the drug, as well as Xanax and Clonazepam, which are anti-depressants. Aynes said he was working with others who lived in the 2600 block of E. 6th Street.

When officers went to the second home, they found a meth lab inside the garage. One of the accused implicated the others along with herself of making meth at both locations.
