More Drug Arrests In "Operation Avalanche"

WALTON COUNTY-- Walton County Sheriff's Investigators say they've arrested 4 more people in connection with a large-scale drug case named "Operation Avalanche."

They arrested 44 year old Glen Mel Hunter and 24 year old Brittany Cecile Via Tuesday at a home in Choctaw Beach.

The pair were allegedly operating a meth lab at the time.

They also arrested 35 year old Charlie "CJ" James Rhodes and 41 year old Sabrina Marie Thompson on meth-related charges.

A total of 30 people are now facing charges because of "Operation Avalanche."

The most surprising is 61 year old Lenny Platteborze.

Platteborze was a public defender at the time.

Authorities searched his DeFuniak Springs office as part of the investigation.

The public defender's office fired Platteborze after his arrest last month.

Authorities say they are still investigating and more arrests are possible.
