The economy may be in a down turn, but the discovery of meth labs by LaFollette Police officers continues to be at an all time high.

An anonymous tip led Det. Lt. Monty Miller, Det. Sgt. Jason Henegar, Officers Pam Jarrett, John Baker, Joe Brown and Steve Wallen to the site of a recent cook in the 400 block of Longmire Lane.

The lab, which reportedly contained all the components typically used in the manufacture of the drug, was found in an area near the lake.

The investigation into the lab is ongoing. No arrests have been made, however, results from some of the items fingerprinted at the scene are still pending.

Persons with information regarding this and other drug related crimes are encouraged to call the drug hotline at 566-0488.
