Kristy Forke was contacted before 9 a.m. Thursday regarding a probation search at 109 Eighth St. in Liberty, the residence of Wayne and Cindy Forke. During the probation search of the basement, where Workman was also located, deputies found a glass methamphetamine pipe, black case with another glass pipe, a straw and two empty baggies with residue that tested positive for methamphetamine.

Court documents state the basement had insects crawling around and the bed and crib of a 2-year-old child were unsanitary. Insects were found in a car seat and dog feces was later found in an upstairs room.

A search warrant was subsequently obtained for the entire residence, while child protective services assisted with placement for the child.

During the initial warrant search, Stevens was placed into custody as he exited a motor home. During a search deputies found a glass bong, broken pipe, another smoking device and three bottles of pills, each bottle had the label nearly all removed. A total of 72 prescription pills were recovered.

A short time later deputies served a search warrant on the remainder of the residence. During the search police located three baggies of methamphetamine totaling 38.2 grams, another glass jar containing 2.1 grams of methamphetamine along with marijuana, a marijuana grinder and two marijuana pipes.

Another bag of weighing 20.7 grams was also found. This substance tested negative for methamphetamine and court documents state it’s believed it was being added to the real methamphetamine to increase profits. Multiple digital scales and hundreds of empty baggies, in addition to nearly $1,900 in cash.
