Fifty-year-old Albert "Chip" Andrews III was charged with a felony-two count of illegal manufacture of drugs, along with a felony-three count of the illegal assembly or possession of chemicals for the manufacture of drugs in Cambridge Municipal Court on Tuesday.
Officers were called to a Deerpath Drive residence just after 9:15 p.m. on Friday in reference to an unresponsive female. Detectives say that Andrews told them the woman, a 30-year-old Cambridge resident, was "acting strangely" about 15 minutes before he found her lying on the living room floor.
While searching the home for the woman's prescription medication, officers reportedly located numerous items associated with the manufacture of methamphetamine. While being questioned, Andrews allegedly admitted to investigators that he was under the influence of meth.
The home was evacuated and isolated until the meth lab was neutralized and disassembled. Andrews remains in the Guernsey County Jail in lieu of $30,000 bond with no ten percent allowed.
This is not Andrews' first brush with the law. In May 1997, he and two others were convicted of robbing and killing 66-year-old Leo Sinnett of Buffalo. Andrews was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter and complicity to commit aggravated robbery and served 10 years in prison for his role in the victim's death. One of the other men, 54-year-old Clarence D. "Skip" Roberts was found guilty of Sinnett's murder and is serving a life sentence, without the possibility of parole.
