Robert Alberts, Terry Maricle and Kristina Yerian were previously convicted on one count of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the second degree, a felony.
Alberts and Maricle were also convicted on one count of unlawful manufacture of methamphetamine in the third degree, also a felony.

Deputies later searched the garage of the home and found multiple materials and substances used to make meth.
Some of the materials found in the garage include: starter fluid, lithium strips from batteries, Coleman fuel, drain cleaner, a gas generator and pseudoephedrine, a main ingredient used in making meth.
Maricle was sentenced to 9 years in prison followed by 5 years of post-release supervision; Alberts was sentenced to 6 years in prison followed by 3 years of post-release supervision; Yerian was sentenced to 3 years in prison followed by 2 years of post-release supervision.
