A Pensacola man and woman were arrested Wednesday on charges that they were producing methamphetamine in a Ferry Pass hotel, an Escambia County Sheriff’s Office arrest report said.
Chipley McDavid Atkinson, 36, and Christine Ann Fletcher, 27, are both facing several drug-related charges after they were linked to a meth production lab in a room at Holiday Inn on North Davis Highway, the report said.
Sheriff’s deputies entered the duo’s hotel room with a search warrant in an attempt to locate Atkinson, the report said.
Inside, they found methamphetamine, a one-pot laboratory and several chemicals and materials associated with meth production, the report said.
A “one pot” lab refers to container such as a plastic bottle in which methamphetamine is produced by shaking the ingredients together.
Atkinson was taken into custody at the scene, the report said. Fletcher’s name and photograph were found on several documents in the hotel room, and she was taken into custody later that evening in another location.
Both have been charged with methamphetamine possession, methamphetamine possession with intent to sell, possession of drug equipment and possession of a listed chemical with the intent to manufacture a controlled substance.
Atkinson is being held on $36,000 bond, and Fletcher is being held without bond for failing to appear at a previous court proceeding.
