An odd, suspicious looking house gets busted for being a “meth lab”. I guess we shouldn’t be surprised. It’s been a growing problem in Florida for some time now. Police are searching very closely for any clues that lead them to discovering a house cooking meth. They’re looking for matchbooks with strike plates removed, or collections of discarded striker plates. Discarded vinyl or rubber tubing, to go along with glass jars and containers are a dead giveaway.
Fourteen suspects, ranging between the ages of 24 and 70 were arrested last Friday on charges of conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine. This was an eight month investigation handled by the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office. Investigators began making arrests early that Friday morning after warrants were issued for a large group of suspects on methamphetamine-related charges. Some in the group were charged with conspiracy possession of listed chemicals, and were arrested and held on $10,000 bail.
Since they have been charged with a methamphetamine drug crimes, they must seek quality legal counsel promptly before it is too late. If they are convicted of anything closely related to possession, delivery, distribution, sales or trafficking of meth, the outcome of the sentence will not be favorable for them. If they are found guilty, they will likely be sentenced according to minimum mandatory sentences. With a skillful attorney by their side, through plea negotiations, they may be allowed to complete a drug treatment program that focuses on their specific substance abuse/addiction, rather than face hard prison time. It’s the best of a worst case situation.
