COALFIELD (WATE) - Two men and a woman were arrested Wednesday at the scene of a meth lab in Coalfield with a homemade bomb.

Larry Parris is charged with manufacturing meth and possession of drug paraphernalia.

David Presley and Amy Presley are charged with manufacturing meth.

The incident began after the Morgan County Sheriff's Office received information about a possible meth lab at a Coalfield residence at 121 E.C. Noe Road.

Officers got a search warrant and went to the home. They say they found a meth lab and an explosive device there, along with other drug paraphernalia.

A Hazmat team cleaned up the meth lab, and the Knox County Bomb Squad responded to dispose of the explosive device.

The Wartburg Police Department and the Sunbright Police Department assisted the sheriff's office with this case.
