A Morrison woman who crashed in an elderly woman’s yard and then tried to hide a meth lab inside the victim’s home before authorities arrived faces an laundry list of charges.The suspect, Christy Stevens, 47, will face hearing Aug. 4 before General Sessions Judge Larry Ross on charges of second-offense DUI, tampering with evidence, promoting the manufacture of meth, reckless endangerment, driving on a revoked license, initiating the process to manufacture meth, and violation of the implied consent, insurance, due care and seatbelt laws.She is charged after she crashed her Honda Civic in the yard of a residence on West Green Hill Road. The injured Stevens then got out of her wrecked vehicle and entered the nearby home while waiting for authorities to arrive.“She entered the residence to use the restroom,” said Highway Patrolman Al Seitner, noting the woman concealed a small working meth lab when she entered the residence. “She carried a one-pot meth lab from the vehicle she was driving into the restroom and placed it under the sink.”The lab, however, broke open while it was under the sink and began leaking on the floor, contaminating the home.“The owner of the residence is an 86-year-old woman and had to say with family due to the chemical odor inside the residence,” Seitner said in his complaint against Stevens.The trooper reported finding numerous items commonly used in the production of meth at the time of Stevens’ arrest.
