some of the worst they had found.
The meth lab was discovered in the apartment
building off of Baileys Moodyville Cash Store.
The building is quarantined until the contamination
levels of the contents are surveyed by a DEA
agency.

probation from previous charges, possession of a
schedule II controlled substance for the purpose of
resale.
Other charges are pending and will be presented
to the next regular scheduled Pickett County Grand
