Authorities have charged two women with cooking methamphetamine in a rural Hillsboro church.

Judith Hemken, 53, of Litchfield and Tiffany Burton, 26, of Hillsboro were charged with participating in manufacturing meth in a church Wednesday. They could each face nine to 40 years in prison if convicted.

Montgomery County Undersheriff Rick Robbins says authorities responded to a call Tuesday from a Waveland Church member about an apparent meth lab. He says deputies stopped a vehicle the caller had described and arrested the women. It’s unclear if they have ties to the church.

Robbins says authorities found and dismantled the meth lab.

Hemken’s bond was set at $200,000 and Burton’s was $100,000.

It wasn’t immediately clear if they have attorneys.
