A Southport, Florida man and woman may become the first people in Bay County to be charged under a new state law.
The new law makes it a crime to keep a child in a home where methamphetamine is manufactured.
29-year-old brain Justice and his 29-year-old girlfriend Jeannine Marie Sullivan are now jailed after sheriff’s deputies pulled justice over for a traffic violation.
He is charged with allegedly giving a false name.
Officers say justice had 3rd degree burns on his body, but would not explain what happened.
Deputies then searched his home and found evidence of an alleged meth lab, which had exploded.
They also found components for a meth lab in Sullivan’s home. Both justice and Sullivan could face possible child abuse charges since the woman’s baby was present at the site of the alleged lab.
