Bulloch County Sheriff's deputies responding to a drug complaint Tuesday said they caught three men in the process of "cooking" methamphetamine.
Deputies knocked on the door of a U.S. 80 East, Brooklet residence, asked permission to come inside, and found "a methamphetamine cook in progress," said Bulloch County Sheriff Lynn Anderson.
They took William Sherman Girardeau, 31, Lane's Church Road, Brooklet, and Terry Michel Deal, 40, U.S. 80 East, Brooklet, into custody, he said.
A third man, Jerry Milford Deal, 62, who also lived at the U.S. 80 East address, refused to obey deputies' commands and had to be subdued with a Taser, he said.
Bulloch County Drug Suppression Team agents were called to the scene to assist in the investigation. Deputies also found a firearm nearby, he said.
Terry Michael Deal was charged with methamphetamine possession and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. Girardeau was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, and Jerry Milford Deal was charged with obstruction of officers and failure to have original containers of prescribed drugs. All three were taken to the Bulloch County Jail to await further court proceedings, he said.
"Anyone with information related to this case is asked to contact Sgt. Kent Munsey at (912) 764-1786," he said.
