Authorities arrested Amber Nicole Davidson, 27, on Saturday at the Come on Inn in Harrisonburg.
Members of a clandestine lab team and RUSH Drug Task Force spent almost all Saturday searching a hotel room at the inn for drugs. Drug Task Force supervisors said they found cold pills and materials to manufacture meth.
They were called after Fire and Rescue found an unresponsive and unconscious woman in a room. Authorities took Davidson, who they suspected to be under the influence of drugs, to the hospital.
Mark Campbell, supervisor of the Drug Task Force, said lately this has become a problem in our area.
"I don't know if it's a growing problem or if it's a problem that seems to flourish here in the Valley because we've been dealing with it for the past several months,” said Campbell. “You know the meth issue and the bath salts issue. They kinda go hand in hand. We'll push them from one, they'll go to another. "
Authorities are holding Davidson at the Rockingham County Jail and her charges are pending lab results. They will get these results in about two weeks.
There are warning signs for you to look out for if you think there is a meth lab being run in your neighborhood. Experts said you should be on the look out for the following:
- Frequent visitors that park far away from the suspected meth lab
- Windows that are blackened or curtains that are always drawn
- Those dealing with meth are typically unfriendly, and appear secretive about activities
- If the meth user, dealer or lab cook has children or pets, they are typically neglected and in danger
