MARYVILLE (WATE) - Five people are facing charges following two separate meth lab busts on Tuesday and Wednesday in Blount County.

The Blount County Sheriff's Office says investigators discovered a meth lab Tuesday afternoon at a home on Sheets Hollow Road after a routine traffic stop.

The driver of the car and owner of the home, Cynthia Evans, 47, was cited with driving on a revoked license and later charged with manufacturing meth.

Two people inside her car, Steven Rauhuff and Jennifer Scearce, were also cited for meth possession.

Tyler Sparks was also arrested at Evans' home for outstanding warrants.

The second incident happened Wednesday afternoon. Investigators arrested Thomas Lee Grimes, 51, after being alerted to a suspicious person at a Maryville business.  That's where authorities found Grimes, and he had two baggies of meth on him.

Investigators also searched his car where they found a meth lab inside the trunk.

Grimes faces charges of meth manufacturing and possession.
