Car given away at fair reported to be a meth lab

DYERSBURG, Tenn. (AP) -- Police say a car given away at last year's Dyer County Fair has been quarantined after a meth lab was found in it.

According to the State Gazette of Dyersburg, the 2011 Toyota Yaris was stopped for a traffic violation and was found to have a meth lab under the front seat.

Three people in the car were charged with initiating meth manufacture. The paper said one of the three reportedly is the boyfriend of the woman who won the car, which is awaiting inspection prior to cleanup.

The paper said it cannot be released to the owner until the cleanup is done.
