Morgan County drug agents bust Falkville meth lab

Posted: Updated:

Morgan County drug agents busted a meth lab in Falkville Friday. It happened at 293 Hardin Road.

Sheriff Ana Franklin said one of the people arrested is a sex offender who not only failed to register, but was also cooking meth at the house.

Deputies got a tip Thursday that the unregistered sex offender was living at a Hardin Road home with children.

Sheriff Franklin was able to get a search warrant for the property.

Investigators found a meth lab, parts of other meth labs all over the property and some finished product.

The sex offender was arrested, as was the grandmother of the two young children living at the house.

Sheriff Franklin said she's seen meth destroy far too many families, and it's the innocent children who suffer the most.

Everyone in the house, including the two kids, were decontaminated by Falkville Volunteer firefighters. The two people arrested are in the Morgan County jail, while the children are in the custody of the Alabama Department of Human Resources.

Sheriff Franklin said more arrests are likely.
