Comments Off on Man arrested after texting mom to clean up drugs

BAYOU GEORGE, Fla. — A Panhandle man who police say texted his mother to help clean up and hide drug evidence for him is being held in jail on drug charges.

Bay County investigators arrested 33-year-old Anthony Paul Burdeshaw Wednesday. He has no attorney listed. Jail records show he was being held Thursday on charges of methamphetamine possession.

Investigators say they were talking to Burdeshaw’s mother about an abandoned barn next to the family’s home that contained methamphetamine-manufacturing chemicals when she received a text from her son. The text asked the woman to clean his bedroom, hide any evidence of drugs and to not allow the police to search his room. The mother brought out to police a glass bowl which tested positive for drugs.

The investigation is ongoing. Additional charges are pending.
