Tallahassee FL-One fight between family members led Madison County Sheriff's Deputies to one of the biggest Meth Busts they have ever seen.
"She was going around the yard talking about how there were people out to get her, she was talking about there are people in the trees," that was Jeremiah Underwood's first clue that things just weren't right with his mother Kim Rachelle Anderson. Thursday he discovered his mothers meth lab.
"I went in their to get some toilet paper and she says well it's right there and I open the door and I saw the actual lab it self," he explained. He told us that's when he realized his daughter his pregnant wife, and himself were in danger, so they confronted Anderson about the drugs. Underwood said his mother, "jumped on my wife and I was in fear for my wife's life." So, he dialed 911.
When Sheriff's Deputies arrived around 10:00 and that's when Anderson denied any Meth being in her possession. It was her son who pointed the deputies towards her lab. Underwood said he did it because he, "just felt like she really needed help."
As the Sheriff Of Madison County, Ben Stewart explains, "There was an overwhelming amount of precursor chemicals present which they use of course to make the Meth. This was one of the largest gatherings of this chemical we have seen in a long time."
45 year old, Kim Rachelle Anderson was charged with possession, and making of methamphetamine as well as battery and child abuse.
She now being held the Madison County Jail. As Underwood describes,"You aren't the same person you were...You're less a shadow of yourself when you are on that stuff," and he says that's why he did it-- to help his mother.
Underwood Stepfather owns the house and is allowing him, his wife and his daughter to stay even though his mom is still in Jail.
