MARYVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Following leads, investigators found three 'one pot' meth labs in a home off Piney Level Rd. in Maryville on Thursday, according to a release by the Blount County Sheriff's Department.

Eric Cable faces charges related to the meth labs, and others found nearby over the past few weeks, according to the release.

Investigators with the Fifth Judicial Drug Task Force searched Cable's home and found two 'one pot', or 'shake and bake', meth labs in the basement and another inside a bag near the house.

The Tennessee Methamphetamine Task Force disposed of the labs on scene, and Cable was decontaminated and taken to UT Medical Center for injuries from a separate incident.
