Ardmore, Tennessee police found a meth lab at a vendor booth at the Dog Days Flea Market Tuesday.

Police called Giles County Sheriff's Department for assistance. Investigators, fire and EMA officials responded to the scene and found an active meth lab.

Officers found the lab in a trailer on the property and disassembled it. Officers had to wear hazmat gear because of the toxicity of the chemicals used to make meth.

Investigators arrested 36-year-old Shawn Parmley of Ardmore and charged him with initiation of meth manufacture and possession of drug paraphernalia. Ardmore Police charged Parmley with theft of property. He was booked in the Giles County Jail with bond set at $24,500.

Other charges are pending and the case is still under investigation.
