For Joleen Crisp and her 65-year-old associate Renter Pete Atwood, it's all meth all the time. Police found the duo cooking meth in a Daytona Beach Shores motel just hours before Crisp, 32, was scheduled to appear in court for previous charges on making meth.
Local investigators found a fully operational meth lab cooking away in Room Six of the Famous Shores Motel. Investigators described the duo as "associates."
Crisp was scheduled to make a court appearance later in that day on previous meth charges, but that wasn't going to slow the meth train down. According to The Orlando Sentinel, Atwood told police that they had already made plans to cook more meth after the court appearance as well.
Police dismantled the lab. They also found another abandoned meth lab in room 11 of the same motel. That lab was also dismantled.
