GREENBACK (WATE) – The Blount County Sheriff's Office arrested five people for meth-related charges in two separate cases Tuesday night.

Investigators found six separate "one pot" method meth labs at a residence on Gregory Road in Greenback Tuesday afternoon.

Deanna Brunetta Evans, 32; Christine Erin Whitehead, 28; and Joseph McCall Kemp, 36, were taken into custody. The Department of Children's Services took custody of a 4-month-old baby who was inside the home.

The suspects were decontaminated at the scene, and the house was quarantined.

In a separate case, investigators arrested two people Monday evening in the parking lot of a local business. The pair told officials they were purchasing pseudoephedrine to resell for the purpose of manufacturing methamphetamine.

Brittany Christina Brock, 22, and Larry Gene Sellers, Jr., 24, both of Louisville, were charged with promoting the manufacture of methamphetamine.

A third person, Brian Keith Nutter, 26 of Seymour, was taken into custody on eight outstanding warrants on unrelated charges.

Both Brock and Sellers are being held at the Blount County Detention Facility on a $10,000 bond. They have a hearing on August 5.
