Posted: Friday, January 25, 2008

ANCHORAGE - A jury has found an Anchorage woman guilty of charges connected with running a methamphetamine lab.

Susan Soss was found guilty Thursday of misconduct involving a controlled substance and tampering with evidence, said Anchorage District Attorney Adrienne Bachman.

She is scheduled to be sentenced May 9th, and could receive up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Officials were alerted to a problem when responding to a house fire in Chugiak in 2005 where Soss was a renter. Inside, officials say there was a meth lab set up.

Soss was found in another apartment with black soot on her face and singed hair. She denied being responsible for the fire or cooking meth at the time.
