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.

The subjects were charged after investigators, conducting a follow up burglary investigation at the residence of the suspects, smelled an odor consistent with the production of methamphetamine onsite. After consent to search the premises was agreed to by the suspects, meth oil product was seized, and admissions concerning the purchase of base substances from the drug store and methamphetamine production process used by the defendants were obtained.

If convicted, Floyd could face up to 30 years and Curry up to 15 years in state prison.

Both Floyd and Curry were transported to the county jail. Bond was set by the judge for $25,000 for Floyd and $10,000 for Curry. Booking photos of the defendants may be obtained at the Walton County Department of Corrections website at http://jailpublic.co.walton.fl.us/default.aspx.

    Well,Typical--you got to know if they possess it they are probably selling it. It doesn't matter the amount, when it's against the law.I agree they need long term treatment. I suppose that since the drug addict can get out and get up money to support his hsbit, he damn well can pay for his treatment.They get about a year in prison,then the rest of the time is probation.Which they usually get back on drugs and get arrested again.If they'd stayed off drugs to begin with they wouldn't be having this problem.

    This is typical government crap!30 years and 15 years for drug crimes.Not selling,not big amounts.Just long sentences for possession.This is exactly whats wrong with our prison system.They need long term treatment for drug addiction.Prison will only make them meaner and teach them how to be more of a criminal.

    Debra looks like a old lady.Sometimes I feel so sorry for the young people getting mixed up in the drug trade.But Debra,if you're not old and don't have enough sense to know better,Then those drugs has aged the dickens out of you. You'll probably have enough time to see what a fool you've become as you sit behind bars awhile.The drug trade is a fools game, You never can win.
