Two people arrested with suspected meth lab

Lawrence County Deputies along with officers from C.O.M.E.T. went to a residence in rural Ash Grove in Lawrence County to speak to subjects regarding possible drug activity.

Contact was made with one of the occupants and further investigation led to the discovery of a meth lab, finished product, and a quantity of marijuana.  A female subject was also located hiding in the residence. 

Both the male and female were taken into custody by officers and the lab dismantled by the C.O.M.E.T. task force.  Formal charges are pending on both arrested suspects who are currently being held in the Lawrence County Jail.
