October 7--  Three people are under arrest after a "meth bust" Thursday.

Toombs County Sheriff Junior Kight says a search of a house on Highway 56 West near Uvalda turned up the methamphetamine.

"Most of these type labs, what they call the 'shake and bake' labs, are mostly for personal use.  They can go to Walmart and buy everything that's in it.  They can sell a little bit of it, but most of it is used for personal use," he said.


The sheriff said the three being charged with manufacture of a controlled substance are 50-year-old Danny Lee McCarty of Uvalda (L), 31-year-old Scott Allen Dees (middle) and 50-year-old Lynn Downie Watson(R) of Lyons.  McCarty was out of jail on probation.

Sheriff Kight reports drug use of all types is widespread in Toombs County.
