UPDATE:Authorities Find Crystal Meth In Drug Bust
CBS 8 is taking action against crime, riding with Autauga County deputies on a drug raid deputies say at a home were dealing thousands of dollars in drugs.
Authorities warned us to be very vigilant during this raid -- when we arrived on scene, and got out of the car authorities had their guns out ready for whatever was to come. Luckily, the raid ended peacefully -- but investigators say they found bags of crystal meth. And some neighbors say they never expected that house to get raided.
Anthony Shaffer lives just two doors down from where the meth bust happened. He says he's heard about the drug in the area, but the scene was too close for comfort.
Now, Jody Nelson and Carl Eugene Piatt, are charged with possession of a controlled substance. Deputies say they could face possible distribution charges. Shaffer says he didn't notice the extra traffic coming in and out of the home, a tip investigators say they got from several neighbors.
Two other people were taken in for questioning, but were later released.
U.S. Marshalls and Alabama State Troopers helped in the drug raid. Sedinger says the crystal meth they found today looks like it was made in a lab out of the country.
This is the second drug bust in Autauga County in a week. Call the sherriff's office at 365-3211 if you ever think you see drug activity.
