SALISBURY – Warrants have been issued for a Salisbury mom accused of keeping a 9-month-old at a home with a methamphetamine lab, authorities said.
The Salisbury Police narcotics unit raided the Carolina Boulevard home Tuesday after suspecting the home contained marijuana.
But once inside, officers found “a small meth lab,” along with processed methamphetamine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
Shaina Elizabeth Satterfield, 20, was expected to turn herself in Thursday, authorities said, but had not by 3 p.m.
Police arrested her boyfriend, 23-year-old Ty Robert Smith, who was inside the home when officers entered Tuesday.
He was charged with felony possession of meth, felony possession of precursor materials, felony manufacturing meth, felony maintaining a dwelling for storing narcotics, drug paraphernalia and misdemeanor child abuse.
The same charges are expected for Satterfield.
Detectives said a crib and toys were found at the home and the 9-month-old frequently stayed at the residence.
Officers also found a marijuana grinder, a bong, rolling papers and several small containers that may have been used to transport the meth, arrest records show.
Smith remained in jail Thursday under an $11,000 bond.
Anyone with information about Satterfield’s whereabouts are asked to contact the Salisbury Police Department at 704-638-5333 or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-639-5245.
