On Thursday, Shelby County Sheriff's Office responded to the Columbiana area with rescue personnel to a report of a one-year old child who received chemical burns to the body. Upon their arrival, first responders determined that the child was in critical condition, and the child was transported to the hospital by Lifesaver Helicopter. The Shelby County Sheriff's Office contacted the Shelby County Drug Enforcement Task Force after they learned the child had been burned from suspected drain cleaner from being exposed to a possible methamphetamine laboratory.

During the investigation, investigators with the Drug Task Force and investigators with the Sheriff's Criminal Investigative Division were able to identify two suspects who were responsible for the manufacturing of methamphetamine. Investigators were able to gather evidence at several locations that indicated methamphetamine was being manufactured and used in the residence where the incident occurred.        

Subsequent to the investigation, the following two individuals have been charged and arrested:

Roger Wayne English, 56 years of age from Wilsonville, was charged with Assault 1st, Chemical Endangerment of a Child, Unlawful Possession of Manufacturing Paraphernalia, Unlawful Possession of Controlled Substance, and Unlawful Manufacturing of Controlled Substance 1st. His total bond is $225,000.  

Brandy Michele Shawver, 29 years of age from Shelby, was charged with Assault 1st, Chemical Endangerment of a Child, Unlawful Possession of Manufacturing Paraphernalia, Unlawful Possession of Controlled Substance, and Unlawful Manufacturing of Controlled Substance 1st. Her total bond is $235,000. 

The Shelby County Drug Enforcement Task Force has been working collaboratively with Shelby County DHR to ensure the child and any other children in the residence remain safe and out of this type of environment.  The child is expected to recover from the injuries.    

The SCDETF consists of law enforcement officers from the Shelby County Sheriff's Office, the Alabaster Police Department, the Helena Police Department, the Pelham Police Department, and the Shelby County District Attorney's Office. The SCDETF is funded by the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs and the Shelby County Commission.
