Three people charged in Marietta drug bust

MARIETTA, Ohio (WTAP) - Three Marietta residents arrested Wednesday afternoon face felony drug charges, authorities said.

Janet D. Shaw, 45, Kelly R. Henthorn, 56, and Robert P. Boyce, 63, were taken into custody after agents with the Washington Morgan Noble Major Crimes Task Force found methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia inside a residence at 300 Phillips St.

Authorities said they had been conducting surveillance at the home, located between Phillips School and the Jane Edwards Head Start Center, after getting complaints about drug activity from nearby residents.

Shaw was charged with trafficking methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of a school and conveyance into a correctional facility.

Authorities said they found Shaw still had meth in her possession after she was taken to the Washington County Jail.

Henthorn was charged with possession of meth.

Boyce, who owned the home, was charged with permitting drug abuse.

All three remained in the Washington County Jail on Thursday, pending their arraignment in Marietta Municipal Court.

Agents and officers from the Marietta Police Department, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, and the Noble County Sheriff’s Office participated in the raid.
