On Monday, May 14, Kingsland resident Shaun Daughtry — fed up with the presence of methamphetamine dealers and users in his neighborhood off Lover's Laner — put up a sign on his property declaring the area to be a “meth-free zone.”

Daughtry told The Highlander he was worried about children who lived in the area coming in contact with drug use as well as a lack of sanitary conditions at a trailer home in the area that was a reputed manufacturing lab for methamphetamine.

Daughtry said he witnessed trash and human feces being burned outside one home and was horrified to think children might be exposed to disease due to the filfth. He was hopeful local law enforcement could do something to get rid of the drug dealers and users in Llano County.
