Keeping Meth in the Family in Western Colorado
What's a little meth between siblings? In this case, it was an adult stepsister suspected of providing meth to her teenage stepsibling. What are sisters for? Not this, since it resulted in both getting busted.
Middle school resource deputies investigated a student in Mesa County for suspicion of methamphetamine use.
Both the student and the older sibling caught the attention of the po-po, and now both are facing charges.
The older stepsister, Justine L. Murphy, 35 of Grand Junction, is suspected of providing drugs to a teenager. She has been booked into the Mesa County Detention Facility facing charges of:
- Unlawful Distribution of Controlled Substance (namely, meth)
- Unlawful Possession of Controlled Substance (you guessed it, meth again)
- Violation of Bail Bonds
- Unlawful Use of a Controlled Substance
- Child Abuse
- Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor
The teenage stepsibling was arrested and charged with:
- Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance (yep, meth)
- Unlawful Use of a Controlled Substance (if you guessed meth, you're right!)
The teenager was booked into the Grand Mesa Youth Detention Facility
It seems there is a reason why they call this area "Metha County." Unless one is mistaken, siblings are supposed to look out for one another, not get each other hooked on meth.
