Meth Bust in Taylor

A raid on a Houston County home has led to several arrests and the seizure of hundreds of thousands of dollars in illegal drugs.

Houston County Sheriff Lamar Glover says an anonymous tip about an illegal drug lab led to one entire family being arrested in the raid.

Ricky Smith and his wife Frances were taken into custody along with their 21-year-old son Daniel at their home on Mattie Lane in Taylor.

Another couple, Thomas and Jean Dickie of Youngstown, Florida, was also present at the time of the raid and they face similar charges.

The raid resulted in the seizure of three liters of meth oil and some of the finished product.

The illegal drugs have an estimated street value of more than $300,000.

Sheriff Glover says the raid wraps up a one-month investigation. Police from Taylor and Dothan assisted with the case. All of the suspects were each booked under a $100,000 bond.
