Posted: Updated:

The Chipley Police Department received information Monday of possible drug activity being conducted in a home with a minor child present.

Officers with the Chipley Police Department accompanied the Department of Children and Families to the suspected residence at 844 8th Street, Chipley.  Upon entry to the home drug paraphernalia was observed near the front door. At that time the Officer contacted members of the Washington County Drug Task Force, which consist of the Chipley Police Department and Washington County Sheriff's Office and notified them of the discovery.

Upon arriving task force members were given consent to search the residence.  Investigators found that, Lisa Junod Smith, 36, of Chipley was in possession of several grams of methamphetamine, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia.  Also located at the residence were several "Shake and Bake" bottles used in the production of methamphetamine.  Chemicals used in the production of Methamphetamine and Methamphetamine Powder were located in common areas just feet away from the minor child's bedroom.

Lisa Junod Smith was transported to the Washington County Jail where she was booked on charges following the search of the residence.

It is completely unacceptable to expose children to live in these conditions. Please continue to call the Chipley Police Department at (850)638-6310 with any suspicions of illegal drug activity in your neighborhood.
