Posted:
HILLSBORO - Two Illinois women are facing charges for allegedly cooking methamphetamine in a rural Hillsboro church.

On Wednesday, Tiffany Burton, 26, and Judith Hemken, 53, were charged with participating in manufacturing meth in a church.  According to Undersheriff Rick Robbins, authorities responded to a call from a Waveland Church member on Tuesday about an apparent meth lab.

Robbins says deputies stopped a vehicle that matched the caller's description and arrested Burton and Hemken.  Robbins also says that authorities found and dismantled the meth lab.

Burton's bond was set at $100,000, and Hemken's bond was set at $200,000.  Each woman could face between nine and 40 years behind bars if convicted.
