Couple arrested in meth bust at Sawgrass home
PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – A Ponte Vedra Beach couple were arrested Friday on methamphetamine charges following the execution of a search warrant at their Sawgrass home.
David Austin, 34, and Kayleigh Wyman, 22, both of 188 Bermuda Court in Ponte Vedra Golf and Country Club, are charged with possession of methamphetamine, production of methamphetamine, maintaining a drug dwelling and possession of drug paraphernalia.
St. Johns County detectives said they began the investigation following complaints by neighbors of suspicious activity at the home and the possibility that meth was being manufactured.
Detectives said they gathered enough evidence supporting probable cause of that activity and obtained a search warrant for the home. They served the warrant just before 9 a.m.
Investigators seized a large amount of precursors and equipment used to manufacture methamphetamine, along with drug paraphernalia, according to the Sheriff's Office.
The St. Johns County hazmat team was called in to decontaminate those who were exposed to the meth products.
John Whitaker, a 26-year-old Clay County man, was arrested when he drove to the home on a suspended license during the execution of the search warrant.
