The Washington County Drug Task Force consisting of the Chipley Police Department and the Washington County Sheriff’s Office reports multiple arrests as narcotics investigations that have spanned several months have concluded.

The investigation included the sell of marijuana, crack cocaine and controlled substances as well as the manufacturing of cocaine and illegal possession of firearms.

“During this roundup we were able to extend our reach not only to local drug dealers, but had the unique opportunity to apprehend a suspect for the manufacturing of crack cocaine” states Chief Crews. “Anytime we have the opportunity to stop someone responsible for producing crack cocaine in our community, we have had a successful day.”

Arrested was:

Dana David Johnson, 43 year old black male of 716 Orange Street Chipley, FL
· Sell of Crack Cocaine
· Manufacturing Crack Cocaine

Patricia Ann Dampier, 37 year old white 1278 Plum Circle Chipley, FL
· Sell of Crack Cocaine

Jeffery Fern Martin, 37 year old white male of 1811A Piney Grove Road Chipley, FL
· Sell of Methamphetamines

David Christopher “Chris” Baxley, 38 year old white male of 1355 Williams Road Chipley, FL
· Sell of Opium

Linda Fae Wood, 40 year old white female of 919 Alicia Lane Chipley, FL
· Sell of Crack Cocaine (2 Counts)

Julious C Russ, 77 year old black male of 1200 Old Bonifay Road Chipley, FL

Robert Martin “Marty” French, 55 year old white male of 921 Waits Avenue Caryville, FL

“The numbers tell a very small part of a much larger story of success as a result of this recent roundup” states Sheriff Haddock. “We were able to not only apprehend suspects who were dealing in trafficking amounts of illegal drugs, we were also able to diffuse an active methamphetamine lab that was within a few feet of a 50lb bag of ammonia nitrate creating the potential for a life threatening explosion within close proximity to several residences.”

The Washington County Drug Task Force asks that anyone with information on illegal drug activity contact us at 638-TIPS (8477) or by email at tips@wcso.us.
