3 generations of Florida family face meth charges

CROSS CITY — Four people representing three generations of a north Florida family are behind bars after deputies say they were 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 Brannins and Cannon 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. He says he's never arrested three generations of a family all at once.

The four were booked into the Dixie County Jail. Phone numbers were not immediately available for the Brannins or Cannon.
