Meth Ring Bust

Operation "Get’em Gone" involved the Holmes County Sheriff's Department along with several state and federal agencies.

Sheriff Dennis Lee says his officers discovered more than a pound of pure "Ice" at a Bonifay home. On the street, "Ice" is known as the purest form of crystal-methamphetamine. It’s the most addictive and deadliest form of the drug.

Authorities say it was meant for distribution across the Panhandle and Southeast Alabama. It carries a street value of more than $100,000.

The husband and wife who own the home are the reported ringleaders of the meth operation.

Undercover officers reportedly made several buys from Jimmy and Janice Lynn Lee's home. They are jailed on charges ranging from distribution to trafficking in methamphetamine.

The couple's 15-year-old daughter also allegedly sold meth to undercover officers and authorities are searching for her.

Officials hope that Jimmy and Janice Lee will soon face federal charges as well.
