Officers said Jarrett is deep into meth and is also known to hang out with gang members.

She’s on probation for forgery right now, but has a deep rap sheet that is filled with violent crimes, including terrorizing an ex-lover:

“Janice walks into the victim’s bathroom, puts her hands around her throat and threatens her by telling her she’s lucky she didn’t tear her head off. When police responded to the scene, they find Janice hiding in a closet,” Christina Lacy of the Department of Corrections said.
