MOBILE, Ala. – Crystal LaSha-Renee Grider, 24, of Gonzalez, Florida, was sentenced in federal court today on her conviction for conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine and to possess a List I chemical with knowledge it would be used to manufacture methamphetamine. Court documents showed that Grider was one of several individuals involved in methamphetamine manufacturing at a trailer on Roy Miller Road in Mobile County during the summer and fall of 2012. Grider was staying at the trailer with co-conspirators and she was also purchasing pseudoephedrine, a List I chemical, for use in the methamphetamine manufacturing. Pharmacy records showed that the conspirators, including Grider, had obtained more than 900 grams of pseudoephedrine to "cook" into methamphetamine.

Grider was ordered to undergo testing and treatment for drug abuse while she serves her supervised release term, which will commence as soon as she is released from her prison sentence. No fine was imposed, but Marks was ordered to pay the special mandatory assessments of $200.
