Jonathan Stephens, Chad Sullivan and Rebecca Mayben were charged with trafficking in methamphetamine in the 5 p.m. raid at the home on Sioux Avenue, the Sheriff’s Office said. Stephens, who is on drug offender probation, also was charged with violation of probation. All three remain in the Putnam County jail with no bail, according to jail records.

The Sheriff’s Office executed a narcotics-related search warrant to search for chemicals and tools used in the manufacture of methamphetamine. Arriving detectives found Sullivan in the master bathroom preparing to inject methamphetamine, while more of the drug was being “cooked” nearby, the Sheriff’s Office said. Due to the explosive nature of meth manufacturing and its noxious fumes, the search was stopped until the chemicals could be neutralized.

In addition to the drug being made, detectives found processed methamphetamine, chemicals and items used in the production of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, the Sheriff’s Office said.

The three children in the home, two of whom lived there, were released to family members as the Florida Department of Children and Family Services investigates.
