TAYLOR COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) - Deputies say a domestic dispute involving a wanted man led them to one of the largest seizures of meth in Taylor County history. 

The Taylor County Sheriff's Office says they responded to Foley Cut Off Road on Wednesday night and were met with the sound of a gunshot. Backup units responded along with K-9 teams from the Perry Police Department and the Florida Department of Corrections.

After hours of tracking the two suspects who ran away, K-9s apprehended one of the suspects, identified as Michael Hale. 

An investigation at the house police were called to lead them to discover approximately 1.2 pounds of meth. Three other people, Tyler Lollis, Sabrina and Roger Slaughter, were also arrested.

Sabrina Slaughter was arrested for trafficking meth over 14 grams, Roger Slaughter was arrested for amphetamine trafficking and a Texas warrant, Tyler Lollis was charged for possession of drug paraphernalia, and Michael Hale, who owned the house, was arrested for assault on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence and trafficking meth over 14 grams.

Deputies say the other man, Maverick Lollis, still remains at large. If you have any information, please call TCSO at 850-584-2429.
