On Saturday, March 21, 2015, deputies responded to the home of William Mitchell Golden, 46, of 1892 Flowerview Blvd, Laurel Hill, for an active warrant for failure to pay child support. Deputies located Golden and a second individual identified as Gregory Parmer, 51, of 6370 CO Hwy 147 Laurel Hill, in a shed located on the property. Golden was wearing a mask over his nose and mouth, along with safety googles. Deputies immediately smelled a strong chemical odor in the shed, and saw paraphernalia associated with the use of methamphetamine in plain view. Investigators with the Walton County Sheriff’s Office Vice/Narcotics Unit arrived and performed a consensual search of the property. Several used “one-Pot” cooking vessels were found, along with a small amount of finished methamphetamine, Adderall, less than 20 grams of marijuana and a trafficking amount of methamphetamine oil.
Golden was arrested and charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance without prescription, possession of drug paraphernalia, and trafficking in methamphetamine. Parmer was charged with possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Both were transported and booked at the Walton County Sheriff’s Office Jail.
