Parents beware! Pink meth surfaces here

Lamar deputies and officers of the Narcotics Task Force raided a home near Orchard Hill Wednesday and seized ‘pink meth’, a type of speed that is particularly attractive to children because it looks like rock candy. Two arrests were made. The residence searched was located at 170 Pine Ridge Road, Orchard Hill. The methamphetamine and a firearm were seized. Arrested were Ronnie Dean Spence Sr., 47, of Orchard Hill and Paul Eugene Justus, 33, of Meansville. They are charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of drug related objects and possession of a firearm during commission of a crime. Lamar sheriff Brad White said his personnel had been briefed on pink meth in the past but this was the first seized locally. ”This type of meth looks like rock candy and, because of the color, may be attractive to children. We want the public to be aware. We will continue to aggressively enforce drug laws and we thank all the citizens who continue to call and report crimes to us,” the sheriff said.
