Sandy Galvin, 26, of Kirksville

A hotline call has landed a northeast Missouri woman in jail facing multiple charges.

Sandy Galvin, 26, of Kirksville is charged with attempt to manufacture/produce a controlled substance in a residence with a child and first degree endangering the welfare of a child.

According to court documents, in March, Kirksville police were asked to escort a member with the Division of Family Services to the residence regarding a call about a possible meth lab, as well as small children at the residence.

When officers arrived, they told Galvin the reason for the visit and were allowed to search the residence. Officers found a jar with a white residue inside the bathroom. A detective with a search warrant arrived a short time later.

During the search, two one pot bottles were found in the bathroom. Those both field tested positive for an ingredient used to make meth.

Galvin admitted she knew meth was being made in the house and was taken to jail. She is being held on a $100,000 bond.

As for the two children inside the home, their clothing had strong odors of chemicals. They had respiratory issues as well as rashes possibly caused by chemicals.
