Feds bust suspected meth lab in Sebring | Crime
Sebring, Florida -- Federal investigators assisted the Highlands County Sheriff's Office in busting a suspected meth house in Sebring Thursday.
Deputies say the home, at 3533 Green Acre Way, contained the ingredients and equipment for making methamphetamine.
Daniel Fitzpatrick, 39, is charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, attempt to distribute, possession of listed chemicals for manufacturing a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
A second man, Jedediah Jennings, 32, faced identical charges plus possession of a controlled substance without a prescription and violation of federal probation.
Nancy Keaveny, 56, was also arrested, charged with possession of cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
The Drug Enforcement Administration's Clandestine Lab unit assisted the Sheriff's Office with serving the search warrant on the home.
Meth labs are dangerous and require specially trained and equipped personnel due to the volatile nature of the components used to produce methamphetamine.
The Sheriff's Office is asking anyone with information on suspicious activity around the home to contact investigators or Heartland Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226-TIPS (8477).
