DeFuniak Springs, Fla— Just before 3:30PM Wednesday July 29th deputies responded to a home on Popcorn Avenue in DeFuniak Springs in reference to a domestic dispute.
When deputies arrived on scene the complainant, Crystal York, 37, was observed acting erratically and told investigators the suspect, Rodney Svetlik, 42, had fled on foot.
York gave permission for deputies to search the premises and further investigation revealed methamphetamine inside the home along with equipment and tools used to manufacture meth. A small amount of marijuana was also found inside the residence.
Svetlik was found walking along the roadside shortly after and was put into custody.
Svetlik and York were arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine, manufacturing meth, possession of less than 20g of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
No charges were filed for domestic battery due to lack of evidence. Svetlik did, however, receive an additional charge of introduction of contraband for having marijuana on his person when he was turned over to the jail.
