Three sent to prison on separate meth-related charges

(Continued)

On Dec. 5, Grissom was arrested along with Carl D. Blackshear, 31; Joann Stewart, 32; and William A. Washington, 34, when police raided Blackshear's home in the 1200 block of East 29th Street, Anderson. Officers found several bags of meth and numerous precursors, according to the probable cause affidavit of the incident.

Blackshear, believed to be the ringleader and a major player in meth cooking in Madison County, received a 24-year sentence after pleading guilty earlier this year. Washington and Stewart both pleaded guilty as well, and were sentenced to 14 and two years, respectively.

Deputy prosecutor Rosemary Khoury said she didn't pursue a greater punishment for Grissom because he was already in prison and serving a long sentence.

The Madison County Drug Task Force wants help from the public to bring down meth labs. Tips can be made anonymously. Signs to look for meth manufacturing are a strong ammonia or solvent smell like an auto body shop. Look for airline-type rubber tubing, ether or camp fuel cans, plastic bottles, pseudoephedrine packages, lithium battery casings and propane tanks with a blue or green discoloration around the valve. The chemicals are highly explosive and fumes are toxic to breathe and will damage internal organs. If you have any information, call DTF's direct line at 648-6796. DTF also offers group classes for drug education.
