Salem woman sentenced to 5 years on meth lab charges

LISBON, Ohio (WYTV) – A Salem woman indicted in March for cooking meth in a Canfield motel was sentenced Monday to five years in prison for previous methamphetamine charges out of Columbiana County.

Fallon Barnett, 31, was at an Eighth Street home on Dec. 29, 2013 when a drug raid conducted by Salem police, the U.S. Marshal’s Service and the drug task force turned up one-pot cooks, marijuana and other drugs. She later pleaded guilty to possession of chemicals used for the manufacture of methamphetamine and cultivation of marijuana.

While that case was pending in court, Barnett was arrested again Nov. 5, 2014, after a search warrant was conducted. She pleaded guilty to a host of charges in that case.

Then, in January, Fallon was arrested again and charged with making meth using a one-pot cooking method at the Colonial Inn Motel on Route 224 in Canfield. Her case in Mahoning County is still pending.

She could have faced up to 19 years in prison for the charges out of Columbiana County.
