Working on a tip, Holmes County Florida sheriff's investigators stopped an older model car along Highway Two, just outside the Noma Community.
Police found more than 30-grams of high-grade crystal-methamphetamine inside the trunk of the car. That’s in addition to large quantities of chemicals used to make meth.
Sheriff Dennis Lee believes the driver was preparing to set-up mini meth labs at sites across the Florida-Alabama line.
Chad Peterson has been charged with trafficking and manufacture of methamphetamine. Because of the large amount of finished drug he allegedly had in the car, the 30-year-old Graceville man could also face federal charges.
Peterson is being held on a $62,000 bond in the Holmes County Jail in Bonifay.
