Trailer Quarantined After Meth Lab Discovery

A mobile home on Dixon Lane has been quarantined after deputies with the Putnam County sheriff's department allege they found a meth lab at that location.  Authorities say they were following up on a tip about meth being made at a trailer, located at 2333 Dixon Lane, when they discovered what they described as a "one-pot" lab in a back bedroom.  They say they also found several ingredients commonly used to make meth in the trailer, including coffee filters, charcoal fluid and lithium batteries. Five people who were inside the residence at the time of the investigation were taken into custody on drug charges. The owner of the mobile home reportedly told authorities that he had found a bag containing the items in his driveway and did not know what they were used for.
