7 arrested for drugs

Seven people from the Florala area were arrested by Drug Task Force agents in the last two days – including four who were caught smoking meth.

DTF agent David Harrell said Friday the arrests began when agents executed a search warrant on a Mitchell Street home Thursday.

“We’d received information of illegal drug activity going on at the home,” Harrell said. “And during our search, we recovered items such as methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.”

Arrested at that location were Dennis Jefferson Sullivan, 41; Jeffery Kyle Sullivan, 21; and Audrie Taylor Hemphill, 18, all of Florala. Each wascharged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and contributing to a minor and booked into the Covington County Jail under a $16,000 bond.

On Friday, agents traveled to a home on North Creek Road during an investigation into the manufacturing of meth, Harrell said.

“During our investigation it was concluded that Robert Coon, Randall Hattaway, Roy B. Smith and Grace Sanders were in the process of consuming meth that had been produced at the residence the night before,” he said. “Several items of evidence, which are associated with the manufacture, consumption and storage of methamphetamine, were located in the residence, along with some marijuana.”

Harrell said agents recovered the meth lab, which was located a quarter of a mile from the residence.

Coon, 55; Hattaway, 28; and Sanders, 35, are each charged with second-degree manufacturing of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. They were booked into the county jail and held under at $270,000 bond. Smith, 55, was charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia and held on a $13,000 bond.

The Covington County Incident Response Team, Florala Police Department, Covington County Sheriff’s Office and the Opp Police Department assisted in the days’ arrests.

This is the second meth-related bust since December.
