Two charged with possessing, manufacturing meth

Two women were charged Monday with manufacturing and distributing methamphetamine, said Lt. Chris Baker of the Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office.

Samantha Page Burner, 20, and Harley Ann Wilfong, 19, are facing charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, conspiracy to sell/provide resale of a schedule I/II drug, possession of a schedule I/II drug and possession of methamphetamine precursors.

The two were indicted in April, and arrested when their indictments were unsealed this week.

Baker said authorities became aware of the organization when they responded to a camper fire near Crooked Run Road in Mount Jackson on Aug. 7, 2015.

“Upon investigation, it was discovered that there were methamphetamine precursors used in the drug’s production at the residence,” Baker said.

When it comes to homegrown methamphetamine cooking and selling operations, Baker said this is not the first one he’s seen in recent memory.

“We’ve had quite a few over the past year or so,” Baker said.

The court date for both women has yet to be determined, according to Baker.
