TOWN OF DIANA — A Lewis County woman is accused of cooking methamphetamine at her residence despite two
previous meth-related drug raids at the same residence, according to Sheriff’s Department
officials.

Sheriff’s deputies said Lindsey L. Babcock, 33, of 6337 Old State Road, Natural Bridge, was taken into custody during a drug raid at her residence on Monday.

The law enforcers said they located multiple components used to cook meth at the residence and on the surrounding property, along with a small amount of finished meth in the kitchen.

Deputies said this was the third such drug raid at this property, and that Babcock was out on a bail bond after being arrested and charged in the first two raids.

Babcock has now been charged with one count each of third-degree unlawfully manufacturing meth, seventh-degree possession of a controlled substance and endangering the welfare of a child, authorities said.

She was arraigned in court and was sent to county jail in lieu of $15,000 cash bail or $30,000 bond, the law enforcement officials added.

The state police assisted in the investigation and raid.
