One Of Three Arrested In Meth Bust On Odin Home Enters Guilty PleaOne of three Odin residents arrested after a methamphetamine operation was found in an Odin home last month has pleaded guilty in Marion County Court to a child endangerment charge.
Wendy Corrie of 1552 Highway 50 was placed on four years probation, ordered to pay court costs, and given credit for 29 days served in jail. Corrie will also have to testify truthfully against the two others arrested. She admitted exposing her ten year old child to a meth manufacturing environment as well as allowing meth manufacturing waste to be stored at the home. As part of Wendy Corrie's plea, a charge of unlawful use of property was dropped.
Probable cause was found at a preliminary hearing earlier this week to continue holding 30-year-old Robert Corrie and 31-year-old Jeremy Malcolm of North Merritt on multiple charges in connection with the bust. All three were reportedly at the Corrie home when agents of the Southeastern Illinois Drug Task Force and Marion County Sheriff's Department executed a search warrant and allegedly found a container of a liquid containing meth runoff from a previous cook.
State's Attorney Matt Wilzbach says the case was developed after records kept of the sale of pseudoephedrine showed a large number of purchases.
