Alleged meth lab found in McMinn County when deputy goes to wrong house

Posted:

ATHENS (AP) - A sheriff's deputy who went to the wrong house to settle a domestic dispute collared drug suspects instead.

The Daily Post Athenian reported the McMinn County officer answered a domestic call in Englewood but mistakenly went to a home four houses away.

Deputy Guy McGill said he caught a strong chemical smell as he got out of his car Saturday evening. Another deputy was sent to take the domestic report, and McGill searched the house where he went, finding an active methamphetamine lab in a bedroom.

Four adults and a 10-year-old boy were in the house.

The adults were charged with manufacturing meth and child endangerment.
