MARYVILLE (WATE) - Blount County investigators discovered a "one pot" method meth lab Saturday, the second lab found in just two days.  

Police responded to a call of a suspicious backpack found in a grassy area just off the parking lot of the K-Mart on McCammon Avenue in Maryville. 

The Drug Task Force inventoried the ingredients of the "one pot" meth lab. The Tennessee Methamphetamine Task Force disposed of the lab. 

Officials say evidence shows that meth was cooked recently in the kit. The investigation is ongoing. No arrests have been made.

This is the second "one pot" meth lab busted in two days. On Friday, deputies arrested Jeremy Robinson, 30, and Michael Bishop, 28, at the Executive Lodge in Alcoa.
