The Levy County Sheriff’s Office Uniformed Patrol Division and Criminal Investigations Division stumbled across an active “meth lab” operation early Sunday afternoon at 3 NE 12th Ave. in the City of Chiefland. Calah Crandall 6-30-89 and co-habitant Klayton Adams 6-19-79 were both arrested after Deputies located the active “cook” operation.
Deputies were conducting follow up investigations into recent vehicle burglaries and contacted suspect Calah Crandall. Crandall gave consent to search the home she was living at and while looking for stolen property, Deputies recognized numerous chemical components used to manufacture Methamphetamines. Containers which contained the combined ingredients to manufacture methamphetamines were found inside the home after a more extensive search. This discovery required an activation of the Chiefland Fire Department Haz-Mat unit. Deputies specially trained in the dismantling of methamphetamine laboratories responded to safely collect this evidence.
