Couple arrested for meth

A citizen’s tip led to the arrest of an alleged meth-making couple on Friday.

Drug Task Force agent Greg Jackson said agents acted on the information that afternoon and arrived to find the smell of the illegal drug coming from the home.

“Af-ter receiving information that Bobby Mat-thew Robert-son and Caressa Lynn Boze-­man were manufacturing methamphetamine at their Rosen Ridge Road home near Loango, we went to the home to investigate,” Jackson said. “Once there, agents made contact with the couple, and while speaking with them about the reports, could smell the odor associated with the manufacture of methamphetamine.”

Jackson said a search of the home revealed finished product methamphetamine, pseudo ephedrine, acetone, red phosphorus, smoking devices and a straw containing methamphetamine residue.

Robertson, 40, and Bozeman, 45, were each charged with manufacturing a controlled substance I, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, booked into the Covington County Jail and held on a $320,000 bond.

Jackson said meth information continues to come into the DTF office almost daily.

“The citizens of Covington County are a great help to the five of us here at the task force,” he said. “Without the information they provide, we would be anywhere near as successful as we are. I am proud to live in a place where the citizens want to help the police get rid of these dangerous labs. We encourage anyone who has any drug information to contact us.”
