Thomasville, GA- Several complaints from residents in Thomasville led Narcotic Agents to a house along Vernon Lane.
"We had information that she has been possibly cooking and selling methamphetamine," said Agent Kevin Lee, the Thomasville/ Thomas County Narcotics Vice Commander.
Lee said when they approached the mobile home, they instantly smelled a chemical odor, commonly associated with the manufacturing of meth. Amanda Block, 26, answered the door.
"She appeared to be very nervous," Lee said. "We asked her if she had any drugs on her, at which time she finally admitted she had a quantity of meth in her pant's pocket."
Inside, investigators found meth along with ingredients used to cook the drug inside a walk in closet.
Block told investigators the drugs weren't hers. She said they were left there by someone else.
"We don't know whether someone had left it there for her, but we do know she had knowledge it was there and that's why she was charged."
Block now faces charges of manufacturing meth and possession of meth with intent to distribute.
She was taken to Thomas County Jail and was released on $7,600 bond.
