MOUNT VERNON — The grand jury charged a Mount Vernon woman with a felony for allegedly allowing the sale of methamphetamines from her residence.
Tia R. Moore, 28, is charged with one count of permitting drug abuse, a fifth-degree felony, for allegedly allowing Chase Sherman, 33, to sell meth from her 10 block Plaza Drive apartment in July. Sherman was charged by the July grand jury with two counts of aggravated trafficking in drugs, charges that allege he sold meth July 11 and July 14.
Sherman was arrested after Mount Vernon Police and Knox County Sheriff’s deputies served a search warrant at Moore’s apartment July 17.
Knox County Prosecuting Attorney Chip McConville said Moore was charged because she is the lease holder of the apartment. Moore was not at the residence when the search warrant was served.
The charge is a fifth-degree felony and carries up to 12 months in prison.
