It was not a good week in Walton County for criminals involved in the making and distribution of methamphetamine. The Walton County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) announces four arrests made in two days for various methamphetamine charges
On Thursday, January 17, 2013, while on patrol, a deputy with the WCSO noticed a vehicle parked in the middle of Slalom Way, in Santa Rosa Beach. The deputy approached the vehicle and made contact with two occupants, Stacey Nicole Scott, 29, and Corey Lee Raybon, 27. When Raybon opened his door, the deputy saw an active “shake and bake” lab in plain view. Raybon and Scott were removed from the vehicle and narcotics investigators, along with South Walton Fire, were called to the scene. The investigation into the rolling meth lab led authorities to find another bottle in the vehicle with meth inside. There was over 14 grams of methamphetamine oil located during the arrest. Raybon and Scott were both charged with Possession of Meth with intent to sell and Trafficking in Methamphetamine-14 grams or over.
On Friday, January 18, 2013, members of the WCSO Vice/Narcotics Unit executed a search warrant at 509 West Royal Palm Ave in DeFuniak Springs, the residence of Lora Sue Lilland, 41, and Troy Wayne Roberts, 38. Lilland, Roberts and a sixteen year old juvenile were on scene at the time of execution. During the search, numerous items associated with a “one pot” or “shake and bake” method of methamphetamine manufacturing were located and seized. Also located during the search was a bi-layer liquid identified as “meth oil,” prescription drugs packaged for distribution, and numerous items of drug paraphernalia. Most of the items were located in the common living and kitchen areas of the residence. The “meth oil” was discovered on the kitchen counter in close proximity to prepared food.
Both Lilland and Roberts were arrested and charged with Manufacturing Methamphetamine, Possession of a Controlled Substance without a Prescription, Trafficking in Amphetamine/Methamphetamine, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Child Neglect.
All suspects were transported and booked into the Walton County Department of Corrections.
