Tulsa woman accused of making meth in McAlester

McALESTER — A Tulsa woman is accused of manufacturing methamphetamine in a home on West Harrison Avenue in McAlester.

Amber Gena White, 33, was charged June 7 in Pittsburg County District Court with manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

White was charged in the case along with Kimberly Ann Hoffman, 25; Tiffany Henington, 28, and Dustin Lamar Hoffman, 30, all of McAlester. The two Hoffmans and Henington were charged with possession of methamphetamine and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to court records, members of the District 18 Narcotics Task Force executed a search warrant on June 6 in the West Harrison Avenue home. Authorities allegedly found numerous items associated with the manufacture of methamphetamine.

When police interviewed White, she allegedly said she was making methamphetamine and the other three defendants had no knowledge of what she was doing. In each of their interviews, the remaining three allegedly confirmed that they had no knowledge of methamphetamine manufacturing going on at the home.

Police arrested the Hoffmans, Henington and White. All four were still in custody at the Pittsburg County jail and unavailable for comment when this story was prepared for publication. White is being held in lieu of a $50,000 bond and the other three are being held in lieu of $25,000 bonds. If convicted, White is facing up to life in prison while the other three are facing up to a year in jail on each of the two counts.

They are all four due back in court June 21 at 9 a.m. to face charges.
