On Saturday three people were charged after police discovered a meth lab on Heckle Street near the Academy of Richmond County.

James Ted Tedder, 42, of Augusta; Mitchell Perry Pelham, 48, of Martinez; and Nancy Susan Wood, 63, of Augusta; were charged with manufacturing and trafficking methamphetamine.

Around 9:30 a.m. Sunday police were called to the 500 block of Tubman Street where they found a meth lab. Police charged Gerald David McMichael, 36, and Eduardo McCord, 38, with manufacturing and trafficking methamphetamine.

Also on Sunday, police were called to 2529 Deans Bridge Road after someone observed a man walking suspiciously behind the building.

Police discovered Perry Edward Hallman, 34, of Augusta, with a bag of items stolen from the building. He was also found in possession of methamphetamine, marijuana and codeine. Another man identified as Michael Lyle Strickland, 45, of Augusta, was discovered in the back of a storage building hiding under a couch.

Is it just me?

Or is meth "white man's" drug and crack "black man's"? Seems to me that 90% of the time I read about or see it on cops shows, whites are strung out on meth (and heroin), and blacks on crack.

If my supposition is true, then why?

Drug addicts come in all colors, shapes and sizes. Put all convicted drug dealers in jail for life. Decide who you care more about, the dealer who poisons for profit or the addict who cannot stop themself.

Itsa, meth started way back

Itsa, meth started way back in the 60's with Hells Angels, that's why it is mostly a "white" drug.

However, addicts will take anything they can get their hands on, even though they have particular drugs of choice.

Plenty of white people do crack, too.

I would chip in some of my taxes on buying an island to put all drug dealers, child molesters, long term criminals on, and let them fight it out. Sure would save alot in prisons, and we wouldn't have to worry about them anymore.

On a Island

Bamaman, your plan seems interesting, but not thought out. The idea has happened over time. Britain did it to the United States. Since we are talking about this police state, by using your idea would lead the system to more innovative and thoughtless arrest of other citizens.

Your wish, will come true one day; be patient. But it won't be an island. They simply will NOT exist!! God will do something that mankind doesn't have the guts to do anymore!! Rehabilitation will be a thing of the past, and THANK GOD FOR IT!!!

This is what drug addicts

This is what drug addicts do!! They can't hold down regular jobs, because they are unreliable!! So, they steal and rob to support their habit!! The majority of thefts, shootings, stabbings, and even sexual crimes you hear about, ARE drug related in some way!!

But SOME people, believe all drugs should be legal and we should allow people to get high on whatever they choose!! Those people actually have NO IDEA, the true impact that narcotics have on society!!

you are right... meth seems to be the drug of choice for the Trailer park trash.. In this case, the brothers have better taste in drugs. (not in anyway saying drugs are good).. but have you seen the ingredients in meth? I think DrainO is one of them.

Look at the teeth of a meth

Look at the teeth of a meth user. They are just about gone and the skin on the face is pitted.
