The LaFollette Police Department (LPD) located a meth lab in the Iveydell area on Monday with the help of an informant, according to LPD Sgt. Jason Henegar.

The medium sized lab was found around 4 p.m., 40 yards from Water Plant Lane, according to police.

It took Lt. Monty Miller, Henegar, Meth Tech Pam Jarrett and Officer Daniel Terry around six hours to contain and inventory the medium-sized lab.

According to Henegar, generators, tubing, and various other paraphernalia were found at the scene.

The Tennessee Meth Task Force reported it was the seventh lab found in the region, on Monday.

“The lab was found close to some other previously discovered labs in that area,” said Henegar.

“We have suspects pending investigation,” said Henegar.
