Meth Lab Discovered In Harbor Isles
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Cocoa Beach police officers interrupted three suspects believed to be cooking “meth” this morning about 8 a.m. when they responded to 630 S. Brevard Avenue at the request of the Rockledge Police Department, according to Major Jay Harmon of the cocoa Beach Police Department.
Cocoa Beach officers were checking out a stolen white Chrysler in the parking lot when their investigation led them to Unit 1126 in the Harbor Isles Condominium.
Seeing the police outside, the three suspects inside immediately fled the unit, with one suffering an injury from jumping out of the unit’s second story window.
All three suspects were apprehended. Investigators, with the assistance of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, discovered material and equipment commonly used to produce methamphetamine inside the unit and believe the subjects were in the process of manufacturing it when the officers initially arrived.
The suspects have been identified as Douglas Herman, 43, of Merritt Island, Paul Dillard, 30, of Cape Canaveral and Malhon Daughtery, 34, of Merritt Island.
Herman and Dillard were each charged with Trafficking in Methamphetamine and Resisting Officer without Violence. Daughtery was charged with one count of Resisting Officer without Violence.
