The Washington County Drug Task Force, consisting of the Washington County Sheriff’s Office and the Chipley Police Department, continues to aggressively attack the drug problems in Washington County, the latest resulting in the dismantling of a meth lab and the arrest of a habitual methamphetamine “cooker”.
Stanley Phillip Tutton, 55 year old white male of 3175 Johnson Road
• Possession of Methamphetamine
• Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
During the drug raid Tuesday afternoon, WCDTF investigators with the assistance of Chipley Probation and Parole discovered both trafficking amounts of methamphetamines and drug paraphernalia as well as numerous “shake and bake” meth labs in active production of methamphetamines in two separate sheds located on the property.
Tutton is currently on probation following an arrest and conviction on manufacturing of methamphetamines charges.
“Chief Crews and I know that it’s ineffectual to only target and eliminate new threats when working cases involving methamphetamine cookers and dealers” states Sheriff Haddock.
“Methamphetamines are attributed with the ability to take hold of its victim and keep them in a revolving pattern of use and production. The grip is like no other and without drastic intervention habitual offenders will be at its mercy for the rest of their lives.”
Sheriff Haddock ask that anyone with information on illegal drug activity contact us at 638-TIPS (8477) or by email at email@example.com.
