A former desk clerk at the Super 8 motel in Plymouth was sentenced Thursday in Marshall County Superior Court 1 on a charge of Conspiracy to Manufacture Methamphetamine, a Class B felony.

Kimberlie Frazier, 34, pleaded guilty to the charge in a plea agreement with the State and Judge Robert O. Bowen sentenced Frazier to ten years in the Department of Corrections with no part of the sentence suspended. The sentence also recommended intense drug rehabilitation treatment through purposeful incarceration.

Frazier admitted in open court that she assisted David Garman in the manufacture of methamphetamine. On Sept. 8, 2013, a housekeeper at the Super 8 motel found what she believed to be parts of a methamphetamine lab. The lab was confirmed by police. A cell phone was found at the scene and officers found that it belonged to David Garman.

Upon further investigation, detectives learned that Frazier, who was the desk clerk at the time, checked Garman into a motel room under the name of another guest who stays at the motel on a frequent basis. Video evidence showed that Frazier visited the room immediately after her shift. That was the room where the meth lab was found. A warrant was issued the arrest of Frazier and she was taken into custody in October. She remained in the Marshall County until her sentencing in Marshall Superior Court.
