LAFOLLETTE (WATE) - Authorities in Campbell County busted a meth lab in LaFollette on Monday. Four people are now facing drug charges following the raid.
Chief Deputy John Finley said the sheriff's office was acting on an anonymous tip which led them to a home in the 300 block of Pleasant Drive.
When deputies arrived, the people living at the house refused to let them go inside.
Sheriff's deputies said they could smell meth from outside the home, so they got a search warrant and returned to the house.
That's when deputies said they found a burn pile near the home where the suspects had attempted to get rid of their meth-making materials.
Officials found four people inside the home, including a woman who was hiding inside an air conditioning vent.
A large meth lab was then found in the bathroom. Hypodermic needles and other drug-related items were also found.
The three people living at the house, Reggie Anderson, 33; Misty Tackett, 32; and Kristy Bradenburg, 30, were all arrested and charged with initiation of the process of manufacturing methamphetamine and drug possession.
Keith Wallace, 43, of LaFollette, was also arrested and charged.
All four suspects had to be decontaminated. They were arrested without incident.
