WILKES-BARRE – A woman out on bail awaiting trial in Luzerne County Court on methamphetamine-possession charges was arrested Monday and jailed on similar offenses.

Amanda Adamski, 29, last known address of East Liberty Street, Ashley, was arrested Monday afternoon by state Attorney General's Office agents.

Agents said a confidential informant told them Adamski was going to be leaving a home on South Sherman Street in Wilkes-Barre on Monday with a bag that contained items to manufacture meth and that she was looking for a location to "cook" meth.

She had a bag containing pseudoephedrine, iodine, red phosphorous, a book of matches, glassware, electric stove top burner, brake cleaner, gas line antifreeze, funnels, tubing and a gas generator, agents allege.

Deputy Attorney General Tim Doherty filed court papers Tuesday requesting that Adamski's $50,000 bail on the pending case be revoked. Judge Lesa Gelb scheduled a hearing for Aug. 16.

Adamski is awaiting a Nov. 19 trial on charges of corrupt organizations, criminal conspiracy and possession of a controlled substance relating to a June 2011 arrest.

In that case, agents with the Attorney General's office said they made purchases of suspected meth from Donna Kocher and Glen Kocher at various locations in Luzerne County.

During an investigation, agents learned Glen Kocher was living at a residence in Wilkes-Barre with his girlfriend, Adamski, and that the two smoked meth there and that he "cooked" meth in a camper behind the residence.

The Kochers are also awaiting trial on related charges.

Adamski is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on the newest charges on Aug. 21 before District Judge Rick Cronauer in Wilkes-Barre. She faces two counts of possession with intent to manufacture or deliver, one count of intent to possess a controlled substance, one count of causing a catastrophe, four counts of possession with intent to manufacture a controlled substance and a drug paraphernalia charge.

She is being held at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $50,000 bail.
