Two Women Arrested For Cooking Meth Inside Local Church
There are plenty of surprising things that take place in church, but cooking meth shouldn’t be one of them, which two Illinois women recently learned the hard way.

It may not be one of the Ten Commandments, but it kind of goes without saying that thou shalt not cook meth in a house of worship. But two women were accused of cooking meth inside a rural southern Illinois church on Wednesday, the Associated Press reports.
Judith Hemken, 53, and Tiffany Burton, 26, were arrested near Hillsboro after a Waveland Hillsboro Presbyterian Church member “noticed activity” in the building on a Tuesday night when it was supposed to be empty, Montgomery County Undersheriff Rick Robbins told the The State Journal-Register.
The church member reportedly spotted one woman outside the church and another in its basement, with what appeared to be parts of a meth lab.
The women fled in a car, but were pulled over by police. Officers found a clandestine lab in the church basement and had to extinguish a small fire that started due to the lithium and moisture from a sink drain, the Journal-News reports.
Yet another reason to Just. Say. No. Clearly drugs fry your brain cells if you think THIS is a good idea.
