Blount County officials investigate several "one pot" meth labs

Posted:

MARYVILLE (WATE) - The Blount County Sheriff's Office and the Fifth Judicial Drug Task Force responded to two separate locations where several "one pot" method meth labs were found on Wednesday night, according to Sheriff James Lee Berrong.

Officials responded to a call of a suspicious bag that a resident found behind their home in a field around 5:30 p.m. on Arabian Lane.

The bag contained items used to manufacture methamphetamine, and evidence showed meth was cooked recently.  The ingredients in the bag were neutralized. 

After the Arabian Lane call, investigators went to a residence on Nails Creek Road. 

Four separate "one pot" meth labs were in a detached garage.  Evidence showed meth had been cooked recently, and the ingredients were also neutralized.

The investigation into both labs are ongoing.

The Fifth Judicial Drug Task Force has worked four separate meth labs so far in 2013.
