            Sheriff Jimmy Harris reports that on March 2nd Bail bonding agents went to a residence on County Road 44 in Fyffe area, looking for a subject when they noticed what appeared to be a Meth Lab. The Drug Task Force agents were called to the residence with a search warrant. During the search of the residence Drug Task Force agents found a 1 pot meth lab, methamphetamine, and supplies to make methamphetamine. Donald Lee Davis, 35 of Fort Payne was arrested and charged with Unlawful Manufacturing of Controlled Substance 1st, Unlawful Possession of Controlled Substance, and Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
