3 Arrested, 1 Sought in Connection With Methamphetamine Case

Justin Baker

Teresa Baker

Samantha Frogge

Danny Myers

On Friday, September 9th, 2011, Stone County Deputy Dustin Wells went to 614 Pine Street in Galena, Mo, to try and arrest a Parole Absconder. When he arrived at the residence, he could hear the people inside moving around and a female finally came to the door. The female, identified as Teresa Baker, told Deputy Wells that the individual was inside the residence. Deputy Wells then arrested Justin Baker on felony probation violation warrants and transported him to the Stone County Jail. During the transport, Mr. Baker made comments about the amount of methamphetamine he was using on a daily basis while at the residence.

With that information, Deputy Wells went back to the residence to speak with Mr. Baker’s girlfriend, Samantha Frogge. She stated to Deputy Wells that Justin did use methamphetamine and that she used it with him. They entered the residence to retrieve the wallet of Mr. Baker and Deputy Wells observed paraphernalia used with narcotics. Based on his observations, Deputy Wells secured the residence and contacted Detectives to assist in a search warrant of the residence. Samantha was taken into custody and transported to the Stone County Jail while a search warrant was obtained for the residence. Shortly after he arrived back on scene after transporting Samantha to the jail, Teresa Baker arrived back at the residence. She was then taken into custody and transported to the Stone County Jail. Also at the residence were to juvenile males. One was 21 months old and the other was seven years old. They were both taken into protective custody and placed in foster care until other arrangements could be made.

During the search of the residence, Deputies located several items used in the production and distribution of methamphetamine.

The following individuals were arrested and charged in connection with this case...

Justin A. Baker, 21 years old White Male from Galena, charged with Class B Felony Attempted Manufacturing a Controlled Substance, Class C Felony Endangering the Welfare of a Child in the First Degree.

Another male who was not present at the residence at the time of the search warrant, 54 yr old Danny W. Myers of Galena, has not been located at this time.
