Mobile Meth Lab Located – Two Arrested

May 12, 2017

The Levy County Sheriff’s Office Drug Task Force Investigators and investigators with the Chiefland Police Department and LCSO Uniform Patrol Division conducted a traffic stop at 2:12 pm this afternoon in the area of 14621 NW Hwy 19 north of Chiefland. 

Investigators learned through an anonymous tip a vehicle potentially had an active methamphetamine laboratory inside. Investigators discovered the information was “spot on” and an active methamphetamine laboratory was in the vehicle. Investigators found a “trafficking” amount of liquid methamphetamine. 

The 2012 black SUV driven by Jessica L. Aguon (7-11-96) of Old Town, Fl was seized. Augon and passenger David N. Collins (1-17-66) from Cross City have been arrested and transported to the Levy County Detention Bureau. They have been charged with manufacturing methamphetamines and trafficking in methamphetamine.

Mobile methamphetamine laboratories pose a huge risk to both our public and first responders. These labs are extremely unstable and first responders have additional concerns when attempting to make these volatile chemicals safe especially on the side of the road.
