West Nashville Woman Arrested Again for Manufacturing Meth
August 12, 2014
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
For the second time in just a few months, a West Nashville woman finds herself in the Metro Jail on a charge of manufacturing meth.
Monica Adkins, 36, was released from Vanderbilt Medical Center this morning after receiving treatment for burns to her hands received in a house fire at 5414 Illinois Avenue, the same place where Adkins and her friend, Brian Keith Williams, were arrested for manufacturing meth on May 1st. The property was still under quarantine as a result of the May investigation.
Firefighters responded to the residence at 11:15 p.m. Monday after neighbors spotted flames. Specialized Investigations Division detectives executed a search warrant on the property early today and found the ingredients/products necessary for manufacturing meth. Adkins is also charged with criminal trespassing for entering into a quarantined home.
Adkins’ bond on May 1st was set at $30,000. Her new arrest today resulted in a bond total of $80,000.
Properties are quarantined in meth investigations after law enforcement removes ingredients and implements used in the manufacturing process. It is then up to the property owner to hire a professional remediation company to thoroughly clean the premises. In this case, Monica Adkins is listed as the property owner.
