Two Pekin Residents Arrested

Last updated on Tuesday, August 20, 2013

(SALEM) - Washington County Sheriff Deputies made two arrests in Pekin.

34-year-old Rocky Stice had an active meth lab in his hands when police arrived at his home in the 500 block of West Main Street with his probation officer to do a drug screen.

They also discovered more items used to make the drug inside his home.

Stice is charged with dealing meth, possession of precursors and maintaining a common nuisance.

Police then served a search warrant at a home in the 50 block of South Mill Street there they found two men on a couch and a 5-month old infant on the floor.

The child's mother, 30-year-old Amanda Prince was charged with possession of meth, three counts of possession of a controlled substance, and two felony counts of neglect of a dependent and maintaining a common nuisance after police found meth, marijuana and prescription medication in the home.

Prince's meth charge was enhanced because the drugs were found within 400 feet of a daycare.

Price also has three other elementary school aged children. All were placed in the care of the grandparents.

She remains incarcerated at the Washington County Detention Center on a $58,000 full cash only bond.
