ATHENS, Tenn. (AP) -- Several meth labs have been found in a condemned house in Athens after city codes inspectors arrived to take photos for a demolition hearing.
Athens Police Officer Corey Fritts' report states police were called to the home when the city employees smelled fumes, reported The Daily Post-Athenian.
Police found 32-year-old Nathan Charles inside the house Tuesday, along with several one-pot methamphetamine cooking labs.
Athens Police Detective Freddie Shultz said the house was already a risk to the neighborhood and became a huge risk with the meth labs inside it.
Charles was held in the McMinn County Justice Center on Thursday on a parole violation charge.
