Sheriff, Police Chief tell city council about drug bust

After entering the residence, police discovered that three additional people were currently residing in the home.  The three residents were identified and one of them, Jeremy Windsor, was arrested for an outstanding warrant from Holmes County.  During a search of the residence, an active methamphetamine lab was discovered in a common area of the home.  At that time, all remaining subjects were arrested, according to the release.  

 Drug Task Force Officers gained information during the roundup that resulted in an undercover operation that nabbed two additional suspects — Amine Mohamad Badreddine, and Lacey Alexis Adkison. Each were charged with the purchase of cocaine, according to police.

 Bonds ranged from $1,000 up to $60,000 at first appearance.

“If it were not for the dedication of the staffs of the Chipley Police Department and the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, we would not have been able to do an operation like this,” Haddock said.

 The illegal drugs purchased during the undercover operation included methamphetamine, marijuana, cocaine, crack cocaine, synthetic marijuana, and various prescription medications to include hydrocodene, Loratab, Xanax, Methadone, Diazepam, and Oxycodone. 

 Several seizures were made during the operation to include an approximate total of $2,686 in cash, and a motor vehicle.

“This type of operation could not be done by any one Law Enforcement Agency,” said Crews. “It takes the community’s support and involvement with law enforcement to make a large scale operation of this magnitude a success.”
