Decatur police said officers arrested four men and two women Thursday after methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia were found inside an apartment.
One of the women arrested had brought her infant child to the apartment where police discovered chemicals and items associated with making methamphetamine, said Lt. Jonathan Green with the Organized Crime Unit. Patrol officers Demetrius Hightower and Shawn Holmes went to Steven Harris’ apartment E-11 at 416 Hay Drive S.W. to investigate a drug complaint, Green said.
Inside, they found meth and contacted OCU investigators Kirk Arrington and Vance Summers. Police searched the apartment and found the drug and other meth-related items but no active lab, Green said. Department of Human Resources investigators responded to the scene and took custody of the baby, he said.
Police charged Harris, 42, with felony possession of drug paraphernalia and Natasha Budde, 25, of 4705 Old Highway 31 S., Decatur, with possession of a controlled substance, a felony, and loitering, a misdemeanor. Harris and Budde were taken to Decatur City Jail and are awaiting transfer to the Morgan County Jail. Harris’ bail is set at $2,500 and Budde’s at $3,000.
