HUNTSVILLE — Two men were arrested and charged with manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance in Trinity County over the weekend.

Acting on tips from the Trinity Police Department, Walker County detectives searched a home on Venus Street in Riverside. On Saturday, the Trinity PD arrested Richard Williamson of Riverside and David Scruggs of Goodrich when they attempted to deliver methamphetamine to someone in Trinity.

A search of Williamson’s home in Riverside on Sunday yielded the following: more than four grams of “ice” methamphetamine in plastic baggies and several syringes containing liquid as well as digital scales and unused empty baggies used for distribution. In the laundry room and kitchen, hot plates, funnels, jars, filters, liquids and more were found, all known to be used in the manufacture of methamphetamine.

Williamson and Scruggs were both charged with manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance in penalty group one – over four grams and under 200 grams.

According to John Davila with the Walker County Sheriff’s Office, Williamson has not yet been charged in Walker County. A case against him will be presented to the District Attorney’s office and if accepted, warrants for Williamson will be obtained in Walker County for manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance – penalty group one over four grams and under 200 grams or manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance in penalty group one – over 400 grams, if the liquids found test positive as methamphetamine.

Over the past month, Walker County Sheriff’s deputies have responded twice to the area of Williamson’s home. During one search, a small metal container with methamphetamine was found attached to Williamson’s dog’s collar.

Walker County Sheriff Clint McRae said the methamphetamine found on the dog’s collar was in baggies similar to those seized during the execution of the weekend search warrant.

“It is unclear at this point if the dog was being used to deliver methamphetamine to customers,” McRae said.

The dog is now in the care of Williamson’s mother.
