On Thursday, April 3, 2014, members of the Walton County Sheriff’s Office Vice/ Narcotics Unit along with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) conducted an investigation targeting John Travis Clark, of 3222 Chat Holley Road, Santa Rosa Beach, who was suspected of manufacturing methamphetamine. As a result of the investigation, agents searched Clark’s residence and located approximately 1500 grams of suspected methamphetamine oil and paraphernalia used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine. The investigation identified Clark as a suspect after Clark had identified himself as an undercover law enforcement officer to facilitate the purchase of pseudoephedrine, which is a precursor chemical used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine.
John Travis Clark was charged with manufacturing and trafficking in methamphetamine and impersonating a Law Enforcement Officer. Clark was booked in the Walton County Sheriff’s Office Jail and is being held on $50,000 bond.
