A WARRANT HAS been issued for thirty-three year old Richard Allen Bills also of West Point charging him with possession of methampheta- mine, manufacturing methamphetamine and pos- session of a firearm during the commission of a crime. AGENTS SEIZED approx- imately one hundred and eleven grams of methamphet- amine from the residence in West Point, along with sever- al gallons of the drug in a raw stage of manufacture. "We had been working on this case for about a month," Sheriff Donny Turner says. "Our persistence paid off Wednesday night. Not only did we get about $11,000 of the finished product, but we got more of the substance in vary- ing stages of the cooking process." THE DRUG Enforcement Administration assisted with the execution of the search warrant and a hazmat team from Atlanta was called in to collect and dispose of the highly volatile chemicals used in the manufacturing process. "These subjects had quite a bit of meth cooking when we searched the residence," Turner says. "That makes it even more dangerous because of the process and the chem- icals used in that process. Some of the chemicals are deadly when mixed together. In some cases, meth labs such as these have been known to explode due to the chemical mixtures. The people cooking these drugs are probably not aware of what could happen." All four suspects arrested were being held in the qYoup County Jail Thursday morn- ing without bond. Law enforcement officers in the two state area are on the look- out for Richard Allen Bills. ,00iiiiiii!i!0000i I I Bryan Geter Sta# PLACE FLOAT - The first place and theme award for the 1999 Hogansville Christmas parade presented to Mrs. Janice's in Home Child Care.

Oxendine Offers Fire Safety Tips For the Holiday Season Atlanta Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner John W. Oxendine urges Georgians to keep safety in mind when dec- orating their homes for the hol- idays. "Decorations such as lights and candles can become fire hazards if not used with cau- tion," Commissioner Oxendine said. "Use common sense when decorating to avoid the possi- bility of a house fire." Commissioner Oxendine offers the following tips for ensuring a safe holiday: Christmas trees - Check the tree for fresh- ness. A dry tree is highly flam- mable. Use this test: Hold a branch about six inches from the tip and pull your hand toward the tip, allowing the branch to slip through your fin- gers. If the tree is fresh, very few green needles will come off. Also: Lift the tree off the ground and tap the stump on the ground. Again, very few needles should fall off. - Spray the tree with a fire- retardant coating. - Cut off the trunk of the tree about six inches from the end. - Place the tree in a stand designed not to tip over, and keep plenty of water in the stand. - Don't place the tree near a fireplace, television, vents or other heat source. - Consider having a live tree which can be replanted after the holidays, A living tree is much less flammable than a cut one. Holiday lights - Buy lights labeled by a test- ing laboratory and check annu- ally for frayed or damaged cords. On Christmas trees, use small lights which stay cool to the touch. - For outside decorations, use only outdoor lights. Never use indoor lights outside. - Always unplug all decora- tive lights before leaving the home or going to bed. - Don't overload electrical outlets. Use caution with exten- sion cords; make sure they're placed where they won't trip anyone. However, avoid run- ning extension cords under car- pet or rugs. - Make sure candles are a safe distance from the tree, cur- tains, furniture, and other flam- mable objects. Don't leave can- dles unattended. Fireplace safety Don't light fires while stockings are hanging on the fireplace. Never burn wrapping paper in the fireplace; it can flare up and ignite creosote deposits-in the flue.
