4 facing meth charges in Augusta

Four people were booked into the Richmond County jail on methamphetamine charges after two separate incidents Tuesday afternoon.

The Richmond County Narcotics Division first discovered a meth lab in operation about 1:15 p.m. at a motel room at America’s Best Inn, 954 Fifth St., Sgt. Allan Rollins said.

Heather Moore Glover, 35, who was living at the motel, was charged with manufacturing and trafficking methamphetamine and possession of marijuana.

During the investigation, two others who had been seen hanging around Glover’s room were arrested.

Coley Alexander Green, 19, of Martinez, was charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute. Green also had an arrest warrant for a state court bench warrant.

Courtney Alise Turner, 18, of Martinez, was charged with possession of methamphetamine.

Several hours later, along the 1700 block of Broad Street, deputies pulled over a vehicle driven by Charles Edwin Baker, 36, for a window tint violation. After deputies found Baker nervous, a drug dog was brought to the scene and discovered 42 grams of methamphetamine inside the vehicle, Rollins said.

Baker was charged with trafficking methamphetamine, driving with license suspended or revoked, and materials on front windshield obstructing view.
