An arrest last month yielded a scary drug- crystal
methamphetamine that looks like candy and smells like strawberries.
to the DEA, this type of meth is engineered specifically to entice teenagers.
The drugs came out of a three-month-long investigation
by the Ashe County Sheriff’s Office and the SBI that resulted in two arrests, 50-year-old
Chester Allen Shepherd and 22-year-old Kristen Faye Davis. The investigation is
ongoing, and more arrests may be made. In the meantime, DEA officials warn to
be on the lookout for the drug, nicknamed Strawberry Quick. While it may look
and smell like candy, it’s a very serious drug, officials warn.
