Meth lab allegedly discovered in Plymouth

An apartment near a church in Plymouth contained a dark secret: a methamphetamine lab, police said.

Plymouth police went to a small apartment complex at 796 State Road, which is near St. Bonaventure Church, at about 1:30 p.m. Sunday, where they found activity “consistent with a small methamphetamine lab,” said Police Chief Michael Botieri.

“One of the residents in the apartments saw suspicious activity and smelled some things that were suspicious,” Botieri said.

Plymouth police, along with US Drug Enforcement Administration agents and a hazardous materials response team, secured evidence from the apartment, including drug paraphernalia, manufacturing instruments, and various chemicals, police said.

“It’s really a quiet, mostly residential area,” said Sheilah Burleigh-Segatore, coordinator for religious education at St. Bonaventure. “It’s a tightknit community. I would have never suspected anything like that going on.”

The apartment building, which contained four apartments, was evacuated during the raid, police said.

Police made no arrests at the scene, but arrested the tenant of the apartment, 38-year-old Kerri Mahoney, Sunday night in Lakeville. Mahoney was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, a Class B substance, police said.

“It appears the setup was big enough that we believe she was selling,” Botieri said.

She was to be arraigned Monday in Plymouth District Court, police said.
