Lab Was Active At Time Of Bust

An active and “extremely dangerous” mobile methamphetamine manufacturing laboratory was busted by the Coffee County Sheriff’s Office and Douglas Police Department’s Joint Drug Task Force (JDTF) this week, resulting in the temporary closure of one of the county’s main roadways and a pair of arrests.

According to JDTF officials, an agent with the JDTF initiated a traffic stop on a vehicle on Georgia Highway 206 just north of the Douglas city limits on Wednesday, September 5.

As a result of the traffic stop, detectives discovered an operating meth lab inside the vehicle.

JDTF detectives immediately contacted the Georgia Department of Transportation and closed the roadway.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation and Savannah Regional Drug Enforcement Office sent special agents to the scene to clean up the meth lab, which took several hours.

Task force officials said the occupants of the vehicle, Angelisa Hurst, of Douglas, and William Byron Lewis, of Valdosta, were both arrested for Manufacturing Methamphetamine.

Hurst was currently out of jail on bond for a Possession of Schedule III Controlled Substance charge stemming from a November 2011 arrest in Douglas. She also had outstanding arrest warrants for traffic charges in Jeff Davis County.

Lewis is currently on probation for methamphetamine charges and had two outstanding warrants for his arrest in Lowndes County, Georgia, for methamphetamine possession and manufacturing.

Hurst and Lewis are both currently in the Coffee County Jail.
