On Monday, August 23, 2010, Columbia County Sheriff’s Deputies discovered a make-shift methamphetamine laboratory in a vehicle.
Deputy Will Porter was dispatched to S.W. Clifford Drive to investigate a vehicle parked on the roadside after concerned citizens became suspicious.
Deputy Porter found the driver and sole occupant of the vehicle, asleep in the Dodge pickup truck. Deputy Porter was able to observe several items used in the clandestine manufacture of methamphetamine. Due to the hazardous nature of the manufacturing process, S.W. Clifford Dr. was closed for several hours. The Columbia County Multi-Jurisdictional Task Force was notified and assessed the scene. A contract hazardous material disposal company arrived from Tallahassee, FL to properly contain and dispose of the hazardous materials.
Gregg Davis was arrested at the scene and transported to the Columbia County Detention Facility without incident.
No injuries were reported as a result of this incident. This case is another example of the positive impact the community partnership with law enforcement can have. The willingness of these observant citizens brought a potentially hazardous situation to a swift and successful closure.
