Seven arrested in Johnson City meth lab bust

By Josh Smith

A tip led Washington County Tennessee Sheriff's Deputies to the discovery of meth in a home in Johnson City this weekend.

Police say they entered a home on the 2200 block of Hicks Road around 7:30 p.m. Friday in search of an individual for whom several arrest warrants were issued.  

"Inside we found methanphetamine and evidence of the manufacturing of meth," said Captain Larry Denny.  

Officers said they found seven people hiding under beds, in closets, and even in the home's attic.  

Deputies removed people from the home and contacted the Meth Task Force to conduct decontamination operations.  

As of 11:30 p.m. the seven people in the home were in law enforcement custody, but no names or charges had been released.
