A couple wanted by the US Marshals found themselves in more trouble when Drug Task Force agents found finished product methamphetamine and an assortment of other drug-related materials.




On Thursday, DTF agents went to a home on Rappahannock Street in Lockhart to pick-up Frederick Foss, 46, and Karen Foss, 46, who were wanted by US Marshals for warrants out of Santa Rosa County, Fla.

“While arresting them, agents saw in plain view marijuana and methamphetamine,” DTF Agent Greg Jackson said.

Agents also made contact with Troy Rebholz, 40, of Navarre, Fla.



“Agents could smell a strong odor of marijuana in the residence and Rebholz admitted to smoking marijuana in front of his two children whom were in the house,” Jackson said. “Agents backed out and applied for a search warrant for the residence.”

Jackson said that agents received and executed the search warrant and found finished product methamphetamine, numerous glass tube smoking devices, lithium batteries, acid, camping fuel and pseudoephedrine, all items used in manufacturing meth.

The Fosses are charged with manufacturing in the first degree, felony possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance. They are being held in the Covington County Jail on a $310,000 bond each.



Rebholz was charged with two counts of chemical endangerment of a child, possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana II and possession of drug paraphernalia and is being held on a $520,500 bond.
