She was charged with possession of methamphetamines.

Based on her arrest, Grant County Sheriff’s Deputy Brian Maines worked with the Northern Kentucky Drug Strike Force, to get a search warrant for an apartment on Kyley Lane in Crittenden. 

Police recovered chemicals and items typically used to manufacture methamphetamine in the apartment and in a dumpster outside the apartment.

Police arrested Steve Brann on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, a Class B felony punishable from 10 to 20 years in prison. Brann was lodged in the Grant County Detention Center on a $25,000 cash bond.

This is the first methamphetamine arrest of 2009, but more are expected.
