DIAMONDHEAD, Miss. — The 34-year-old sister of Vikings quarterback Brett Favre faces drug charges after she was arrested Wednesday in a raid on a Mississippi condo where people were making crystal methamphetamine, authorities said.
Brandi Favre was among five people arrested in the Diamondhead bust and was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and generating hazardous waste, said Hancock County Sheriff's Maj. Matt Karl.
"She happened to be there and she was arrested along with the others," Karl said.
Two of the other suspects face the same charges as Favre. The other two were charged with sale of a controlled substance. And one of them also faces a charge of possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute.
The four other suspects ranged in age from 25 to 53.
About nine grams of the drug – worth about $1,000 – was recovered and hazardous materials teams had to clear the condo, Karl said.
Brandi Favre was in custody and has an initial court appearance scheduled Thursday morning.
A message left for Brett Favre's agent James "Bus" Cook wasn't immediately returned.
The arrest was first reported by WLOX-TV in Biloxi.
