As a result of a narcotics investigation, task force investigators arrived at 1408 State Road 79 over the weekend to follow up on reports of drug activity at the residence, according to the report.

A search revealed multiple pipes with methamphetamine residue, electronic scales, several “shake and bake” style methamphetamine labs in active production of methamphetamines, and 850 grams of methamphetamine oil, which is methamphetamine before the drying process, according to the report.

“Some of our most valuable tips often originate from members of our community” state Sheriff Bobby Haddock. “In this case, it resulted in a historic amount of methamphetamines being seized and removed from our county.”
