On December 17th the Washington County Drug Task Force executed a search warrant at a North 5th Street home in Chipley. A search of the home produced a small amount of illegal prescription pills, marijuana and methamphetamine. We also located inside the home over a dozen pieces of drug paraphernalia that is consistent with smoking drugs. Arrested was 29 year old Howard Wesley Tyler Basham closing a 3week investigation (for now).
It’s bad enough that we deal with the adults in the drug infested homes, but it’s even worse when we see children living in these conditions. There were 6 kids located in this home with ages ranging 6 months to 14 years of age. We continue to urge the public to call in tips regarding illegal drug use and distribution.
