WALLAND, Tenn. (WVLT)- The discovery of a meth lab in Blount County lands two people behind bars on drug charges.
The Sheriff's Office says Franklin Burrage is charged with starting the process to make meth.
Jeffery Riffey faces charges for promoting the manufacture of methamphetamine.
The men were arrested Sunday morning at a home on Payne Hollow Road.
Deputies went to the home to serve a warrant and say they came across evidence of the lab.
A total of four people were home at the time. They all had to be decontaminated.
Burrage and Riffey both are due in court on Wednesday.
Charges are pending against a third person. She was taken to the hospital as precaution.
Investigators say meth could have been cooked at the home as recent as Saturday night.
