The ongoing investigation into the production, distribution and sale of methamphetamine in Steuben County has resulted in the arrest of a 33 year old Bath woman.
State Police arrested Amber Crout on a felony charge of falsifying business records as well as a misdemeanor charge of criminal possession of meth manufacturing material. Investigators allege during the months of July and August, at various locations in Steuben County, including the Tops Supermarket in Bath, Crout purchased a pseudoephedrine product in an amount and frequency that exceeded federal regulations with the knowledge it would be used to unlawfully manufacture meth.
In an unrelated manner, Crout was also charged with criminal trespass for unlawfully entering a residence. At the time of her arrest, she was found to be in possession of a quantity of suspected methamphetamine.
Following her arraignment, Crout was sent to Steuben County Jail.
