Neighbor Charged With Letting Friends Cook Meth
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Police say a St. Louis County woman let her friends cook meth in the home of vacationing neighbors who had asked her to watch their cat.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 34-year-old Laura F. Stephens is charged with felony property damage in a case that involves more than $37,000 in cleaning costs.
She reportedly allowed two men and a woman to use the home while her neighbors were away. She was jailed on a $20,000 bond.
A spokesman for the county prosecutor's office says Stephens is the only one of the four people to be charged due to conflicting stories among the suspects.
