Sheriff’s investigators shut down meth lab
Three people remain behind bars after Grady County Sheriff’s officers found them allegedly cooking methamphetamine during the wee hours of Labor Day. The arrests come after a long term investigation by the sheriff’s office.
The three were arrested at the home of Brian Keith Folsom, 3707 Pine Park Road, at 2 a.m., Monday. Officers executed a search warrant at the address, and say they located several small liquified petroleum tanks believed to be used to store anhydrous ammonia, a component used in the manufacture of meth. Inside the home was a meth lab bubbling as it cooked the illegal drug substance, according to Steve Clark, chief sheriff’s investigator. Clark says there was also numerous other components used in the making of meth along with a quantity of suspected meth already produced.
Folsom, 25, was taken into custody along with two others inside the house. Samantha Taylor Holder is an 18-year-old from Thomasville, and Claude Nelson Cowart is a 36-year-old, whose address is unknown to investigators.
All three are charged with manufacturing meth, possession of meth and possession of anhydrous ammonia. Clark says the investigation is continuing in this case and more charges may be lodged.
