Two alleged meth makers in West Salem are indicted

Two people accused of making meth in West Salem have been indicted.

Heather A. Graham, 28, and Anthony V. Smith II, 33, both of 64 Congress St., have been charged as co-defendants in a five-count indictment that includes counts of illegal possession or assembly of chemicals for the manufacture of drugs, a third-degree felony, and two counts of felony child endangering.

Smith was indicted on illegal manufacturing of drugs and Graham for complicity in an offense, both first-degree felonies.

Both are out on bond and have entered not guilty pleas on all charges.

According to court documents, they were arrested Jan. 26 after a search warrant on their Congress Street residence was executed between the Medway Drug Enforcement Agency and the Wayne County Sheriff's Office.

Several items used to make meth, along with suspected drugs, were found inside the residence. A 12-gauge shotgun also was located inside the residence.

Smith reportedly told law enforcement he cooked and sold methamphetamine. Both he and Graham were allegedly purchasing boxes of pseudoephedrine as well, and sold some of those boxes for $50 to $100 apiece.

The couple's two young children -- who are 4 and 3 years old -- also were in the residence at the time the search warrant was executed. They were placed into the care of family.

No future court dates have been scheduled.
