Wolfe Co. police bust meth lab

Wolfe County Sheriff Chris Carson says officers discovered a meth lab after responding to a tip. Carson said as soon as they walked in the building, located just off Old Highway 15, the smell gave it away.

Neighbors of the Campton Methodist Housing were not happy to hear about the discovery of a one-step meth lab, but they said they were glad to see police doing their job. Investigating officers have arrested 23-year-old Robert A. Puckett and 26-year-old Jasper E. Spencer. Officials from Drug Enforcement Special Investigations came in to decontaminate; only apartment 8 in Building E of the complex where the lab was located had to be evacuated.
