Geneva County Sheriff Greg Ward says his officers have broken up a large-scale crystal-meth operation.
On Monday, a search warrant was served at the home of Chris and Regina Lewis several miles North of Slocomb. Officers reportedly found a large amount of meth, along with the chemicals to make it.
They along with Jimmy Grantham of Wicksburg, face several serious drug felony charges, including manufacture and possession of crystal methamphetamine.
Darren McArdle of Cowarts was also arrested and faces a charge of possession of meth.
Over the next twelve hours after that, Geneva Police and the Geneva County Sheriff's Department were involved in two more raids.
In the first case, authorities arrested 36-year-old Donna Stiles and 23-year-old Terri Lynn Farris at a home in Geneva County's Mims Hill Community.
The women were reportedly about to cook a batch of the highly addictive narcotic.
From there, officers served a search warrant at a residence in the Bellwood Community.
Initially, Greg Moore was arrested on theft of livestock, but authorities found evidence of a drug lab. He also faces charges of possession and manufacture of meth.
