Knox County Businessman Arrested After Old Meth Lab Found

Knox County (WVLT) - Clean up crews are working to take care of an inactive meth lab on Old Rutledge Pike.

Knox County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Martha Dooley says deputies found the meth lab in a trailer at Domermuth Environmental Services Wednesday.

The business's owner, 32-year-old Cristopher Domermuth, was arrested on outstanding warrants.

Dooley says Domermuth had meth in his pocket at the time of the arrest, and deputies also found several guns in a truck.

    This has been going on for years, and eyes were paid to look over it - maybe if someone would have listened years ago, not just him but so many others would have been saved. I pray for his innocent children and hope they are able to come out of this without too much emotional baggage. Mind you readers...he has had MANY locations that were reported but when his family owns an environmental clean up business !! God Bless the Domermuth Children.

    this is a great bust but sad to see a family spiral out of control and watch the system fail to help until it is too late!
