Meth ring runs in the family

CROSS CITY, Fla. (AP) - It's a generational thing: Deputies in Florida say a man, his daughter and his grandson, along with a fourth person said to be a family relative, are accused of working together to manufacture methamphetamine.

Dixie County Sheriff's officials say 54-year-old Allen J. Brannin, his 34-year-old daughter, Amy M. Brannin, and her 18-year-old son, Austin J. Brannin, were arrested Thursday. Another relative, 18-year-old Tyler W. Cannon, was also arrested.

The Gainesville Sun reports the suspects were arrested after deputies served a search warrant at their Cross City home.

Sheriff's Maj. Scott Harden says it's hard to imagine someone "cooking up meth" with their daughter or grandson, let alone both.

The four were booked into the Dixie County Jail.
