Acting on a tip, the task force executed a search warrant at a residence off of Highway DD in Seligman at around 4:30 a.m. last Wednesday. Officers found around 30 bottles that were in different stages of methamphetamine production using the "shake and bake" method. According to task force officers, each bottle was capable of producing over 35 grams of meth.
