DARLINGTON METH BUST

Aug 28th, 2009 | 0

An on-going drug investigation by the Walton County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) into crystal-methamphetamine resulted in two arrests in the Darlington area.  Jason Clayborn Hughes, 42, and Crystal Beth Williams, 21, were taken into custody at a rural mobile home by WCSO narcotic investigators over the weekend.
The couple’s arrest comes as the result of a probable cause search warrant developed from an eight-month undercover investigation, and information provided by the Florida Department of Corrections. One sheriff’s official says Hughes and Williams produced a large supply of the highly addictive narcotic across northwest Florida and southeast Alabama.
Both suspects face a long list of charges.  They include manufacture of meth, possession of listed chemicals, possession of meth, and possession of drug paraphernalia.  In addition, Williams is being held on an out-of-state drug warrant for the Houston County Sheriff’s Office in Dothan.  Hughes has an outstanding violation of probation charge as well. The drug raid may result in additional arrests as well.
A WCSO undercover agent believes the arrest of Hughes and Williams will “cut down” on the supply of crystal-meth on Panhandle streets.
