CROSS CITY, Fla. (AP) -- Feb. 17, 2012 -

It's a generational thing: Deputies in Florida say a man, his daughter and his grandson, along with a fourth person said to be a family relative, are accused of working together to manufacture methamphetamine.

Dixie County Sheriff's officials say 54-year-old Allen J. Brannin, his 34-year-old daughter, Amy M. Brannin, and her 18-year-old son, Austin J. Brannin, were arrested Thursday. Another relative, 18-year-old Tyler W. Cannon, was also arrested.

The suspects were arrested after deputies served a search warrant at their Cross City home.

Sheriff's Maj. Scott Harden says it's hard to imagine someone "cooking up meth" with their daughter or grandson, let alone both.

The four were booked into the Dixie County Jail.

    Seems many cry the "You Owe Me" that still stems from the past. Forgive and Forget. However, look at the Leon County Booking Report at the Race Make Up. See for yourself the majority of who is committing crimes. Any given day, you'll have the same answer.

    "Hell hath no fury, like a crackhead on meth'!" It's not just a recreational biker drug, it's pretty much everywhere now and replacing manufacture of illegal alcohol in the Appalachians. Thanx.

    I'm a white guy and I think they should hang these thugs in public, all of them. Ever seen a 16 year old white girl on meth? I have.

      They are too busy looking for articles with blacks so they can sprew their hatred. Maybe they have moved on over to the racist website created by some FSU students. The ones on this site would fit right in. Shame, shame.

    Why does every article devolve into a race discussion? Bad people are bad people. In my opinion, our country needs to focus on better education. It solves a lot of these problems.
