Police Raid Apartment, Find Man Cooking Meth

Valdosta, Georgia - January 27, 2012 -

A tip from a concerned citizen led the Valdosta Police Department's Narcotics Unit to an apartment in the 1800 block of North Ashley Street.

There police executed a warrant that led to the arrest of Stephen Smith. He was charged with possession of methamphetamine, manufacturing methamphetamine and possession of tools for the commission of a crime, according to officers.

The raid occurred around 5:30PM on Thursday afternoon.
The tip came from the manager of the apartment complex who described strange behavior prior to the arrest. Smith was approached by the apartment manager when he flooded his room after falling asleep with the shower running.

The suspect is currently being held in Lowndes County Jail.

      this is steve's 3rd manufactoring charge. steve is a very smart man, but coming from someone who has gotten the chance to know him im afraid to say that there is no hope for this man. he has over 20 felony convictions in his life and this drug now dictates his life. as stated before he is a highly intelligent individual and very kind as well; but I personally believe there is no chance of rehabilitation for a man like this.

    Well that is a room or rooms that will have to be gutted and rebuilt so it can be inhabited again. That was stupidity at it's worse.
