BAY ST. LOUIS – A Mississippi grand jury has decided not to indict Brandi Favre, the sister of former NFL quarterback Brett Favre, after it found there was not enough evidence to link her to charges of manufacturing methamphetamine.
The Sun Herald reported Monday that a Hancock County grand jury returned a no true bill on charges against the 35-year-old Favre, of Pass Christian. She was among five people arrested Jan. 12, 2011, at a Diamondhead condo during an investigation of alleged meth manufacturing.
The newspaper reports that the grand jury also opted not to indict 37-year-old Marty Grimes, of Kiln.
Three other people arrested in the investigation were indicted: 54-year-old Carl Wynn, of Diamondhead; 41-year-old David Logan, of Poplarville; and 26-year-old Alesha Kirkland, of Waveland.
Sheriff’s officials said the arrests were made after uncover agents bought meth from Logan and Kirkland at a gas station off Interstate 10. Agents went to Wynn’s condominium and said they found an overwhelming smell of smoke and fumes coming from a bathroom.
Investigators said they found an active meth lab in Wynn’s bathtub and they seized 9 grams of meth with an estimated street value of $1,350.
An arraignment date for the three remaining defendants has not been set, the newspaper reported.
