A Chattooga County man confessed to investigators that not only did he make meth, he was mixing it with horse de-wormer. Drug agents discovered that 37 year old Bobby Ferguson of Subligna allegedly exposed meth users to unknown dosages of the de-wormer which can have a variety of side effects, including liver damage.
He was apparently attempting to increase the amount of meth he sold through the mixture; Sheriff Mark Schrader said the substance is white and resembles meth.
Ferguson was arrested following a search warrant at his residence.
The raid was conducted after authorities received information that drugs were being sold at the location.
Ferguson was charged with four counts of Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon and one count of Possession of an Article with an Altered ID, Possession of Meth with the Intent to Distribute, along with two counts of Possession of Meth and Selling Meth.
Another individual, 44 year old Kim Sue Biles, was arrested at the home on a Possession of Meth charge.
Another person arrived at the home on an ATV while deputies were searching the property – that person, 40 year old Randall LeBron Williams, of Walker County, was arrested after a meth pipe was found in his pocket; he was on parole at the time.
The operation was a joint effort between the Chattooga County Sheriff’s Office and Lookout Mountain Judicial Drug Task Force.
