Alleged meth lab bust leads to drug charges for 4 in Tennessee

May 8, 2018


An incident at a local motel led to the arrest of four individuals recently. When police responded to the Tennessee motel room, they allegedly found evidence indicating that the men possessed and were manufacturing methamphetamine. The four were arrested on drug charges.

On Tuesday, May 1 at 8 p.m., police responded to a complaint at the Len Haven Motel in Weakley County. Sherriff’s department authorities were assisted by local municipal police during the incident. Together, they say they found an active meth lab and the four individuals in question. Among the materials reportedly confiscated were an active one pot bottle, lye, sulfuric acid, camp fuel, marbles, salt, coffee filters, plastic tubing and various other meth-making supplies. Also seized were smoking pipes and scales. 

Police arrested the four people and held them on manufacture of meth and possession of drug paraphernalia. A vehicle was seized during the raid. In the aftermath, the motel room was placed on quarantine and will be cleaned according to protocols before being opened to the public again. The state meth lab support team assisted with the cleanup and break down of the lab.

The four individuals were all 27 years of age or younger. Drug charges like the ones they are facing could have significant long-term consequences. All individuals placed under arrest are presumed innocent until — and only if — proved guilty in court and beyond a reasonable doubt. Individuals facing similar charges have the right to consult with an experienced defense attorney in Tennessee who can assist them with mounting a vigorous defense against the criminal charges.
