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

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.
