“The property is clearly marked with ‘No Trespassing’ signs located in several different locations and yellow tape had been placed in an effort to obstruct entry to the property,” McMann said.

“The officer was given consent to search their property, and discovered multiple syringes with a crystal-like residue that field tested positive for methamphetamine along with spoons and other items that also had residue that field tested positive for methamphetamine,” he said. “Taylor also had active warrants with the Baldwin County Sheriffs Office and the Escambia County Sheriffs Office (Ala.).”
