Coffee County Meth Bust

A routine traffic stop lead to a large scale crystal-methamphetamine operation in Coffee County.

Drug task force agents served a search warrant at a home in the Goodman Community, several miles outside of Enterprise.

Authorities arrested 50-year-old Billy Weatherford.

He reportedly was in the process of making meth when agents raided the home.

Sheriff Moates says it's the latest case where his officers have busted up a drug lab.

Weatherford was released from the Coffee County Jail under a $60,000 bond.

The Alabama Legislature is trying new ways to control the growth of illegal methamphetamine labs in Alabama.

The Senate Judiciary Committee approved a bill that would make it a crime, punishable by two to 20 years in prison, to expose a child to a meth lab.

The bill now goes to the Senate for consideration.
