The Levy County Sheriff's Office is working a chain of information to shut methamphetamine (meth) manufacturing with the bust of a fourth lab — this latest rolling among U.S. Highway 27A, and a meth lab dump site in the past month.
The drive to make Levy County started April 27 when a theft investigation led to the discovery of an active meth lab at a Chiefland residence. An man and a woman were arrested in that operation. (Fore earlier story, click here.)
A tip from a concerned citizen to the Levy County Sheriff's Office led to the discovery of an active methamphetamine lab on Northeast 85th Street in Bronson on Monday night, as well as the arrests of three men and a search for a fourth person.
Two people were taken to the hospital in the wee hours of April 30, after a fire broke out in a Morriston mobile home, located at 18150 SE 15th St., according to the Levy County Department of Public Safety.
