One of the largest seizures of methamphetamine in Taylor County history.


From the Taylor County Sheriff’s Office:

What originated as a domestic dispute involving a wanted person, turned out to be one of the largest seizures of methamphetamine in Taylor County history.

Patrol deputies responded to a residence on Foley Cut Off Road late Wednesday night and were met with the sound of a gunshot. Backup units responded along with K-9 teams from the Perry Police Dept. and the Florida Department of Corrections. After hours of tracking two suspects that fled, K-9 officers apprehended Michael Hale. Maverick Lollis remains at large with an outstanding felony warrant and faces additional charges. The investigation at the residence led to three other arrests and the discovery of approximately 1.2 pounds of methamphetamine.

Sheriff Padgett commends his deputies and responding officers who worked throughout the night to safely apprehend these violators. Additional thanks go out to the Florida Department of Corrections and Perry Police Department K-9 teams who train tirelessly every day, standing ready to carry out their core missions, and eager to assist other agencies when the call is made.

Arrested, Tyler Lollis (charged with possession of drug paraphernalia), Roger Slaughter (amphetamine trafficking and a Texas warrant) Sabrina Slaughter (trafficking meth over 14 grams) – all of Perry – and Michael Hale who listed an address of 3841 Foley Cut Off Road (assault on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence and trafficking meth over 14 grams).
