On January 9th, 2011 23-year old Brian Reeves, 27-year old Brandy Berrier and 20-year old Donavan Smith of Baker were detained by Florida Fish and Wildlife Officers for poaching. During the course of their investigation, it was determined that all three were living at 5669 Griffith Cemetery Road.
During a consent search of their home for additional contraband items in reference to poaching, Fish and Wildlife Officers discovered a clandestine methamphetamine laboratory. Wildlife Officers contacted the Okaloosa County Multi-Agency Drug Task Force who responded and assumed control of the narcotics investigation.
The scene was processed by DTF Investigators and numerous items of drug paraphernalia associated with methamphetamine production were seized, along with liquid methamphetamine well in excess of 3 ounces. Both Reeves and Berrier confessed to their involvement, and the investigation tied Smith to purchasing cold tablets for the drug production. All three are charged with trafficking in Amphetamine, fourteen grams or over.
