JACKSON COUNTY, Fla. (WMBB) — The Jackson County Drug Task Force said they arrested a major methamphetamine supplier in the Jackson, Washington and Holmes County communities.

Authorities said they were able to collect enough evidence to identify 49-year-old Douglas Pelham from Graceville as an alleged meth supplier in the area.

On Tuesday, the drug task force conducted a search in Graceville where they found the 3 pound bag of meth along with cash.

Pelham was present during the search and was taken into custody as a result.

The seizure led to the arrest of four other people:

  • 39-year-old Christopher Benefield of Alford faces sale of methamphetamine.
  • Marcel Jose Deleon of Cottondale faces trafficking in methamphetamine
