Four people, including a former Century resident, were arrested in Escambia County, Ala., after officers found an active meth lab in a mobile home.
Sandra Watson, 38; Josh McCormick, 26; Sena Daw, 22; and Karissa Carroll, 19 were all charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia and manufacturing of a controlled substance. All listed a current address in Brewton. According to Escambia County, Fla., jail records, Daw is a former resident of Century.
Agents from the 21st Judicial Drug Task Force received a tip that an individual was making multiple purchases of pseudoephedrine, a common ingredient used in the meth making process. Agents responded to the residence on Highway 31 in Brewton where the they entered the home with a resident and discovered the components of a meth lab. The residence was evacuated, and a search warrant was obtained for the home.
When the search warrant was executed, agents found what they believed to be an active meth lab with about $1,000 worth of crystal methamphetamine.
All four suspects remained in the Escambia County (Ala.) Detention Center Tuesday afternoon awaiting a bond hearing.
