Domestic Violence Incident Leads To Meth Lab Discovery, Arrests

August 31, 2012

Four people were arrested after deputies responding to a domestic violence call near Atmore located a suspected meth lab Thursday.

The Escambia County (Ala.) Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call in reference to a male and female fighting in the yard of a home at 89 Bell Fork Road, just off Highway 21. As deputies were responding to the home, they received a second 911 call from a female, 34-year old Dana Bullin of Atmore, at the Creek Smoke Shop near Highway 21 and I-65. She was transported by ambulance to Atmore Community Hospital for treatment of injuries allegedly received during the altercation.

During their investigation, deputies said they determined Bullin had entered the residence on Bell Ford Road and allegedly assaulted  Larry Paul and Jamey Bullin before taking Jamey’ Bullin’s wallet.

Deputies obtained a search warrant for the residence, where they discovered what they believed to be  illegal narcotics, including crystal methamphetamine, marijuana, hashish and prescription medications. Deputies and narcotics agents also recovered items typically used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine.

Dana Bullin was charged with theft of property second degree and domestic violence assault third degree.

Jamey Bullin, age 35 of Stockton, was charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance, unlawful manufacturing of a controlled substance second degree, first degree unlawful possession of marijuana and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

Larry Paul, Jr., age 36 of Atmore, was charged with unlawful possession of controlled substance, unlawful manufacturing of a controlled substance second degree, unlawful possession of marijuana first degree and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

Robert Mayo, age 21 of By Minette, was charged with unlawful possession of controlled substance, unlawful manufacturing of a controlled substance second degree, unlawful possession of marijuana first degree and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

All four were booked into the Escambia County Detention Center in Brewton to await a bond hearing.

    None of you probably care but Larry Paul, my dad, has been clean for going on 6 years now. He’s a QC at an established company. He has a pretty great credit score and he now gets to see his son. You may only see him as a dope head, but he’s a good man. He takes care of his family and he’s sober. None of what he used to do can be justified, but he’s righting his wrongs and never complains about anything. He’s my best friend, then and now. I am so proud of how far he’s come and how much he’s accomplished.

    Privacy issue? It sounds like you are uneducated on the fact that meth labs (even miniscule in size) are extremely toxic with horrendous health effects. Just you living next door means you were most likely exposed to the toxic chemicals used in the lab.

    ****Please please please educate yourself on how disasterous, dangerous and horrendous meth lab houses are for those inside making it and those within a 100 yard radius. (A simple google search will suffice.)

    Privacy will be you’re least concern buddy. These people need to be exposed and should never be able to purchase or get ahold of the tools for a meth lab.

    Consider the cops stumbling upon this meth lab house a blessing and be thankful these losers didn’t blow up your block.

    I watched all of this happen. I live right next door and I had cops upon cops parking not only in their yard but in mine as well. This whole thing was because she showed up and yes was very violent. The cops were called to serve and protect the people bein attacked and instead they all end up in jail. Instead of Larry being the victim in which he was he became the criminal. Nobody was worried anymore about what the woman had done. It was all about the drugs then. His own mother got slapped by her and nobody even questioned her. They treated her too like a criminal and almost put her in jail for trying to protect her son from the woman. I saw the whole the happen. And yes there may have been reasons for them all to go to jail but this was a bit much. There should be a privacy issue involved. Putting this on here for everyone to see especially without all the details is just wrong.
