DTF Agent Dave Harrell said multiple purchases of psuedoephedrine led law enforcement to find more than 28 grams of meth and four marijuana plants at a Whatley Road home.

DTF investigators had been watching the sale of pseudoephedrine and the people questioned about the sale linked 35-year-old Nicholas W. Adams.

“We went to the residence on the information we had obtained,” Harrell said. “There was evidence in plain view that gave us enough to search the residence.”

In addition to the marijuana, a meth lab containing all the components associated with the manufacturing of meth, a “shake and bake” bottle and more than 28 grams of meth were found at the residence.

Harrell said they are currently searching for a second suspect in the case.

“There is another subject we are wanting to question,” Harrell said. “The other person is a running buddy of Adams.”

Adams is being held at the Covington County Jail on charges of manufacturing I, trafficking, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana II and held on a $557,000 bond.
