Two arrested on meth charges in Hawkins County

CHURCH HILL, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Two people were arrested at a home on Okalona Road early Sunday after a clandestine methamphetamine lab was found.

Deputies say they found commonly used items to make meth: a home-improvised hydrochloric acid gas generator, aluminum foil, rubber tubing, sulfuric acid, Coleman Fuel, coffee filters, and ammonium nitrate.

Steven Craig Browning and Brandy LeAnn Talton were taken to jail.

Narcotics officers say they also found a small amount of finished meth, along with a dinner plate containing meth residue.

A non-active “one pot” meth lab and empty pseudoephedrine blister packs were found outside.

The Tennessee Methamphetamine and Pharmaceutical Task Force was called to the scene to assist in the neutralization and disposal of all hazardous materials.

Narcotics officers also quarantined the property for safety purposes.
