Three Arrested As Marion County Sheriff's Department Investigates Meth Activity

By Bruce Kropp, WJBD News

The Marion County Sheriff's Department has arrested three people on meth related charges after receiving a tip about possible meth production at a Centralia apartment.  

Deputies say after going to the home of 43-year-old Christie Wooters of Eastwood Drive early Saturday morning they received permission to search.  They allegedly found remnants of a meth lab, meth waste, and finished meth.  Wooters was arrested for alleged aggravated production of methamphetamine, providing a place for the manufacture of meth, and possession of over 100 grams of meth.  

The person who answered the door when deputies arrived, 42-year-old David Hopper of Case Street in Wamac, was arrested for possession of over 100 grams of meth and on outstanding Marion and Washington County warrants.  

24-year-old Casey Horn of Main Street in Walnut Hill was arrested for alleged participation in meth manufacturing.  She was allegedly found sleeping in Wooters' car after deputies were given permission to search the vehicle.  They allegedly found meth manufacturing waste in the car as well.

The State Police Meth Task Force was called out to dispose of the meth related items.   

The three people arrested are being held in the Marion County Jail pending their first court appearance.  Another person at the home was released without being charged because deputies did not believe he was involved in the alleged drug activity.
