FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Washington County Drug Task Force, consisting of the Washington County Sheriff’s Office and the Chipley Police Department, reports the arrest of five people and the dismantling of an active methamphetamine lab at a home on Houston Road in Chipley.

A Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputy, acting off a tip, arrived at the Houston Road residence in the early morning hours of Monday, September 26th. WCDTF Investigators arrived on scene to assist and consent was given by the property owner to search the residence.

Task Force investigators found five suspects inside the home in the process of “cooking meth”. In addition, investigators found methamphetamines, drug paraphernalia, and a “shake and bake” bottle actively producing methamphetamines. The house was immediately cleared due to the volatile nature of the meth lab and officers trained in methamphetamine lab dismantling were able to safely contain and then remove the lab.

During the search, investigators also found several bottles of what is commonly referred to as “bi-layered liquid”. Bi-layered liquid is the product you have after the initial “cooking” process and before you have your finished meth product.

Timothy James Braddy, 23 year old white male of 1565B Houston Road in Chipley, FL
• Manufacturing Methamphetamines

Christopher Ryan Bass, 21 year old white male of Anderson Street in Chipley, FL
