CHURCH HILL, TN (WJHL) – A Church Hill mother is facing manufacturing methamphetamine charges after her 14-year-old son admitted to using the drug.

On October 1, the grandmother of the teenager reported to the Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit that her grandson admitted to using methamphetamine after failing a urine drug screen.

Officers conducted a search warrant at Teresa Lorean Lipps’ home on Shipley Road in Church Hill.

During the search, police seized 3 one pot meth labs.

They also found components used to make meth, such as empty salt containers, empty sulfuric acid containers, and spent lithium strips throughout the property.

In addition, officers located empty pseudoephedrine boxes and cut open lithium batteries in her bedroom.

The hazardous materials were transported to the Tennessee Dangerous Drugs Taskforce.

Lipps was not present during the time of the search and thought to be attempting to evade law enforcement.

Police located her on October 28, and arrested her on the outstanding warrant charging her with manufacturing methamphetamine, a class B felony in Tennessee.

During the investigation officers learned that a 7-year-old and 2-year-old were frequently present at the residence while methamphetamine was being used.

Additional charges are expected to be placed at a later date as well as additional suspects charged.

Lipps was being held in the Hawkins County Jail without bond pending an arraignment in Hawkins County General Sessions Court.Copyright 2015 WJHL. All Rights Reserved.
