Parents Face Trial on Fewer Charges in Meth Lab Case
Gary Palmer, 52, and Tiffani Palmer, 49, were held for trial on fewer charges.
The case is moving forward against the parents of two adults, who face trial for operating a meth lab.
Gary Palmer, 52, and Tiffani Palmer, 49, were held for trial on charges including endangering the welfare of a child, causing or risking a catastrophe, and several drug charges during a preliminary hearing Friday. A charge of manufacture, delivery or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver was dropped for both. Intentional possession of a controlled substance by a person not registered was dismissed for Gary Palmer.
State Police served a search warrant on a residence on Main Street in Elgin Borough Nov. 9 around 8 p.m.
Their adult children - Lee Palmer, 27, and Devin Palmer, 23 - will face trial on drug charges, including operating a meth lab. A district judge made the decision during the preliminary hearing for both men Jan. 23. Gary and Tiffani Palmer were arrested during the hearing.
The endangering the welfare of a child charge was filed for Gary and Tiffani Palmer because investigators said they allowed the meth lab to exist while their 16-year-old daughter was living in the home.
