A raid Wednesday at a Bacliff residence that netted almost a pound of methamphetamine is the latest evidence that the highly addictive stimulant is fast becoming popular in the county, sheriff’s office officials said.

“It doesn’t matter whether it’s here, Brazoria or Chambers counties — meth is a problem everywhere,” Galveston County Sheriff Henry Trochesset said. “It’s to the point where every time I hear about a house being on fire somewhere on TV, my immediate thought is that someone is cooking meth, way before I think it could have been a gas leak.”
