LAMAR COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

Deputies from the Lamar County Sheriff's Office arrested two men on Friday for possession of methamphetamine.

The Lamar County Narcotics Task Force executed a search warrant at a home on Pine Ridge Road.

Deputies found methamphetamines and a firearm in the home.

Ronnie Dean Spence Sr., 47, of Orchard Hill, and Paul Eugene Justus, 33, of Meansville, were arrested.

Lamar County Sheriff Brad White said the methamphetamine found inside of the home was pink. This type of methamphetamine looks like rock candy, and because of the color may be attractive to children, according to White.

This is the first case of pink methamphetamines the department has come in contact with.
