Meth ‘candy’ in the High Country PDF Print
Thursday, 04 October 2007 21:29

An arrest last month yielded a scary drug- crystal methamphetamine that looks like candy and smells like strawberries.

According 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.
