PREVIOUS REPORT:



WASHINGTON COUNTY - The Washington County Drug Task Force reports it has executed the largest meth specific roundup in the county's history, with the arrest of eight and warrants issued for four additional suspects.



Arrested and charged with the selling of methamphetamines were: James Louis Spivey (three counts), Ashley Lynn Street, James Dalton Davis, Lillian Street, Leah Kathryn Miller (two counts), and Wendy Irene Riley. Also arrested was Leonard Paul Pouncey, charged with possession of methamphetamines and possession of marijuana, and Johnny Elmer Finch, charged with possession of listed chemicals and possession of drug paraphernalia.



The task force has also connected two individuals currently incarcerated in the Florida Department of Corrections to the drug activity, also charging Dallas Payne and Alex Payne with the selling of methamphetamines.



"What makes this round-up unique is the potency of the drug we're dealing with," said Washington County Sheriff Bobby Haddock. "What we seized is a high powered version of the drug, commonly referred to as 'ice'."



The task force is currently seeking more suspects in this case as well.



Wanted in connection with the selling of methamphetamines are: Christon Faith Patrick, Larry Martin Mercer, Solon Lee Earnest, William Lowell Rogers, and Bridgette Teresa Ward.



Anyone with any information on the whereabouts of these individuals is asked to contact the WCSO at 850-638-6111.
