MORGAN COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Agents arrested two people on meth related charges in Morgan County on Wednesday.

Authorities responded to a home on Pearl Street after receiving complaints about the manufacturing of meth. Agents previously raided the home on Feb. 26 and arrested 34-year-old Jason Wayne Weeks. 

After returning to the home agents found several grams of meth and drug paraphernalia. Authorities arrested Weeks again, as well as Tamra Dunn, 30, who investigators said had several outstanding drug warrants.

Both were charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia.

Sheriff Ana Franklin said the sad truth is she is never surprised when someone arrested on meth charges goes right back out and does the same thing, because the addiction is just so strong. "You have a 96-percent rate of returning this kind of lifestyle. It's just a horrendously heartsick lifestyle of nothing but crime and hopelessness and addiction," she said.

According to the sheriff's office, Weeks will likely have his previous bond revoked after these new charges. "We feel pretty certain that the district attorney will stand with us in trying to get this bond revoked. At that time, I hope Mr. Weeks is able to stay in jail long enough to get clean and sober and at least be out of the community's problems for awhile," said Franklin.

His bond is set at $200,000. Bond for Dunn was set at $100,000. A judge will decide whether to revoke Weeks' bond. There is a hold on him, so he cannot be released before that hearing.
