Defuniak Springs, Fla- Walton County Sheriff Mike Adkinson announces the arrest of two suspects who have been charged with possessing illegal substances.
Sheriff’s investigators have charged Zachary David Floyd, age 24, of Ponce De Leon, Florida, with one count of a violation of F.S. 893.149 (1) (a) Possession of listed chemicals with the intent to manufacture, a 2nd degree felony, and one court with a violation of 893.135 (1) Possession of controlled substances over 14 grams to wit: methamphetamine. Debra Lynn Curry, age 55, of Ponce De Leon, was also charged with a violation of F.S. 893.149 (1) (a) Possession of listed chemicals with the intent to manufacture.
