Hellertown Meth Lab Operators Plead Guilty

A mother and son who operated a meth lab inside a Main Street, Hellertown home pleaded guilty in Northampton County Court in separate hearings Thursday.

A mother and son who operated a meth lab inside a Main Street, Hellertown home pleaded guilty in Northampton County Court in separate hearings Thursday, the Morning Call reported.

As part of previously agreed to plea deals, Joan Hummer pleaded guilty to felony conspiracy and will be sentenced Feb. 7, while her son Chad Hummer, 30, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine and was sentenced to three-and-a-half to seven years in state prison, plus a year of probation, the newspaper article indicated.

Two other people involved in the meth lab's operation have pleaded guilty to charges, and another man, 27-year-old Nicholas L. Reynolds—who is also a son to Joan Hummer—will stand trial in February, it was reported.

Authorities busted the meth lab at 166 Main St. in August, and several other high-profile raids of alleged meth labs in the Saucon Valley area soon followed.
