On November 16, 2011 Holmes County Sheriff’s Office received information that there was an active meth lab on Boat Ramp Road in Holmes County.
Investigators traveled to the suspected residence and made contact with Brian Thomas (28) who indicated he lived at the residence. A subsequent search of the residence revealed that there was meth being made at the residence and evidence indicated that they were in the final stages of the manufacturing process. Investigators seized suspected methamphetamine in solid and liquid form. All five of the adult occupants of the residence were arrested and transported to the Holmes County Jail on charges of manufacturing meth and possession of meth. The continuing investigation into the case is expected to produce additional arrests. In response to this case Holmes County Sheriff Tim Brown said “evidence in this case indicates that the dangerous “shake and bake” method of making meth was being used, which puts everyone in the residence in danger”. Sheriff Brown added “I appreciate the flow of information that comes into the Sheriff’s Office to help us fight this terrible drug”. Sheriff Brown encourages anyone with information related to meth or other crimes to call the Holmes County Sheriff’s Office at 850-547-3681 or call Crime Stoppers of Holmes County at 866-689-8477; you will not have to give you name and you may be entitled to a cash reward of up to one thousand dollars.
