ROCKLAND, Maine — An Owls Head woman was sentenced Wednesday to 15 months in prison after admitting she was involved in the production of methamphetamines.

Heather M. Gregory, 41, was sentenced by Justice Joyce Wheeler in Knox County Superior Court to six years with all but 15 months suspended. Gregory also will be on probation for two years after she gets out of prison.

Gregory was one of four people arrested Nov. 15 in Owls Head, accused of trafficking in methamphetamines.

The four were producing meth through a simple one-pot method at a house located next to the Owls Head Baptist Church, according to the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency. Police said they had been monitoring activities at the house for about a month before they raided the residence.

Also arrested were Anthony Torre, also known as Shots Moniker and A.J. Torre, 22; Travis Batty, 29, of Owls Head and 22-year-old Damien Welch, who had moved to Owls Head from California a year before the raid.

Torre was sentenced in May to six years in prison with all but three years suspended for trafficking in meth. Batty was sentenced earlier this month to six years with all but four years suspended.

Welch’s case remains pending in court.
