DIAMONDHEAD, Miss. (AP) — Police say the 34-year-old sister of Vikings quarterback Brett Favre faces drug charges after she was arrested in a raid on a Mississippi condo where people were making crystal methamphetamine.

Maj. Matt Karl of the Hancock County Sheriff's Office said Wednesday that Brandi Favre was among five people arrested in Diamondhead. He says she will be charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and generating hazardous waste.

Karl says about nine grams of the drug — worth about $1,000 — was recovered and hazardous materials teams had to clear the condo.

Brandi Favre is 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.
