NEW HOPE, AL (WAFF) - Four people are in custody following a methamphetamine bust Monday near New Hope.
New Hope Police, Madison County sheriff's deputies and STAC agents were called to a home in the 4500 block of Hobbs Island Road.
Police said they received calls from neighbors about a fire and a strong chemical odor in the air.
Officers arrived to find three men and a woman cooking meth inside.
"They were burning what appeared to be precursors used in the manufacturing [of meth]," said Chief Steven Dick.
The chief said said all three suspects tried to run, but were all captured.
The names of the suspects have not been released at this time; but they face a slew of charges including manufacturing and distribution of meth and eluding police.
