Another North Escambia Resident Busted On Meth Charges
February 25, 2011
Another North Escambia resident has been arrested on an outstanding meth-related warrant, joining well over a dozen arrested earlier this week due a local, state and federal law enforcement operation.
Joseph Daniel Flowers, 31, of Molino Road, is facing charges of possession of methamphetamines with intent to sell, methamphetamine trafficking, possession of drug paraphernalia, and two counts possession of listed chemicals with intent to manufacture a controlled substance.
Escambia County Sheriff’s Office deputies located an active methamphetamine lab inside a residence at 1115 Muscogee Road during the early morning hours of February 7, 2011. They discovered Matthew Michael Ramsey, 38, of Molino; Robert Edward Raines, 48, of Cantonment; and Flowers inside the residence with the meth lab. Flowers was transported to a Pensacola hospital for an untreated burn on his hand and warrants were issued for his arrest.
Raines and Ramsey were charged with possession of methamphetamines with intent to sell, trafficking in methamphetamine , possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of listed chemicals with the intent to manufacture a control substance. Raines was also charged with possession of marijuana under 20 grams.
Raines and Ramsey were released from jail on bond, but Ramsey was arrested Tuesday as local, state and federal officers rounded up drug suspects in the county. Ramsey is now facing federal charges of conspiracy to possess and distribute pseudoephedrine for use in manufacturing methamphetamine and conspiring to manufacture the methamphetamine.
