2 Arrested in Suspected Meth Lab Raid Appear in Court

Posted: Updated:

The two people accused in a suspected meth lab bust in Waynesboro earlier this week appeared in court. Friday morning, the suspects appeared over closed circuit television in General District Court to learn their options for legal representation and bond.

April Riddle, 38, and Jesse Balin, 23, will both have court-appointed lawyers.

The judge asked Balin if he had a job before this arrest, and the suspect said he had been looking for work without success. Riddle was not asked about her employment status, but when asked where she would stay if given bond, she replied it would be at her mother's house.

Waynesboro police arrested the pair after a raid of a home Tuesday on Sherwood Avenue turned up apparent chemicals used to make meth, which were sent to a lab for testing.

Both will remain in Middle River Regional Jail for the time being.
