A Charleston resident pleaded guilty to drug charges and was sentenced to eight years in prison Thursday.

Jennifer Lynn Kyker was arrested May 19 along with Jeremy Lance, according to Charleston Police Department reports.

On Thursday, Kyker pleaded guilty to one count of initiation of methamphetamine manufacturing and one count of possession of meth for resale.

The case against Lance has not been settled, according to officer David Spandau.

Kyker was also fined $2,000.

According to reports, officers went to the home located at 266 Cass Lane and made the discovery of suspected meth manufacturing.

After the couple was arrested, officials quarantined the house.

Spandau said Lance was still incarcerated at the Bradley County Jail, awaiting either settlement of the case or a future trial.

- Tennessee Highway Patrol will be conducting Driver’s License Roadside Safety Checkpoints in Bradley County.

Preliminary reports released by the Tennessee Department of Safety indicated five people died on Tennessee’s roadways during the long Memorial Day holiday weekend.

According to reports, one fatality reported was alcohol-related. The checkpoint initiative is a continuation of aggressive traffic safety enforcement.

The checkpoints will be set up in random location in the county.

According to THP officials, checkpoints are an effective means of recognizing the dangers presented to the driving public, by motorists who would violate the laws of the state.

All scheduled checkpoints are contingent upon weather conditions and manpower availability.
