CHRISTIANSBURG, VA -

A Christiansburg woman will serve time in prison for making methamphetamine in an apartment with children inside.

According to Montgomery County Commonwealth's Attorney Mary Pettitt, 26-year-old Rebecca Lynn Farley pled guilty on Wednesday to felony manufacturing of meth, and possessing ingredients used to make meth with the intent to distribute.

A judge sentenced her to 15 years in prison, but allowed her to be released on supervised probation after serving three years.

"We will continue to demand mandatory prison terms for those engaging in the dangerous manufacture of methamphetamine within our community," said Pettitt.
The case began on November 29, 2012, when the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office got a tip from the DEA that Farley and another person were making meth at the Bluff Apartments on Republic Road.

Investigators determined that Farley had bought, or tried to buy, pseudoephedrine 38 times in 2012.

When deputies arrived at the apartment complex, they noted a chemical odor so strong, it could be smelled from the outside of the apartment.

Officers found Farley, two juveniles, and multiple other people inside the apartment, along with four "one-pot" meth labs (one of them active), meth, and items used to make meth.
