Brett Favre's Sister, Brandi, Arrested in Meth Lab Raid
Investigators arrested Brandi Favre and four others after narcotics officers discovered the active meth lab in a condo complex in Diamondhead, Miss., Maj. Matt Karl, director of narcotics for Hancock County, told FanHouse. Favre faces two felony counts -- including one related to manufacturing methamphetamine -- and is scheduled go before a judge on Thursday.
"We had been looking at the location for several weeks," Karl said. "The cards fell right."
The five arrested in the raid were taken to an area hospital for decontamination before they were booked. The Biloxi Sun Herald reported that investigators found methamphetamine cooking in the bathtub along with nine grams of the drug, worth about $150 on the street.
"We had to evacuated six or seven units," Karl said. "They weren't able to return until the hazmat people cleared out all the chemicals."
The site of the lab is less than 10 miles from Kiln, where Brett Favre and his siblings were raised. Favre currently lives about 85 miles north of Diamondhead on a ranch in Hattiesburg, Miss.
The condo unit was put under surveillance after an undercover narcotics officer purchased meth from one of the suspects. Favre was not part of the sale, according to Karl.
While not of the criminal variety, Brett Favre faces his own legal woes.
Two women who worked for the New York Jets as massage therapists claimed via a lawsuit filed earlier this month that Favre sexually harassed them when he was a member of the team in 2008. Favre also faces a possible lawsuit by Jen Sterger, a broadcaster who allegedly received inappropriate texts and pictures from Favre the same year.
The NFL investigated the incident and fined Favre $50,000.
