EAST RIDGE, Tenn. (AP) -- Investigators charged a Chattanooga woman and a Georgia man with cooking methamphetamine in a motel room at East Ridge.
A public safety spokesman in the Chattanooga suburb said Tuesday that officers located chemicals, tubing and glassware that were being used and there were "different stages of making the drug going on" when officers seized the lab Monday afternoon.
East Ridge public safety spokesman Erik Hopkins said a hazardous material team was dispatched to dispose of the lab.
He said the room will remain quarantined until the chemical cleanup is completed.
Investigators charged 26-year-old Sheena Oliver of Chattanooga and 29-year-old Perry Bell Jr. of Rossville, Ga., on charges of manufacturing and possessing the addictive stimulant. They are being held on bonds pending a Feb. 17 court hearing.
