DRUGS AND FAKE DRUGS
• A Centralia woman who allegedly tried to pass off salt as methamphetamine called police just after 5 a.m. yesterday when her unsatisfied customers returned and were kicking at her door threatening to assault her. “They were upset,” Centralia Police Department Sgt. Stacy Denham said. Officers arriving to the 1400 block of Johnson Road ended up arresting the woman, 31-year-old Melisa F. Akers. Officers discovered three teenage boys at the home who had consumed marijuana and arrested Akers for delivery of marijuana to minors, according to police. Akers, who is five months pregnant, was booked into the Lewis County Jail but released over the weekend because she had to be hospitalized for complications. She was charged today in Lewis County Superior Court with that crime, as well as possession of methamphetamine and also delivery of a counterfeit controlled substance. Sgt. Denham said whether the man and woman who purchased salt and allegedly threatened the woman might be in trouble wasn’t yet decided. “They didn’t want to talk much,” he said.
