Douglas- Coffee County Deputies have shut down 3 labs in as many weeks.

The latest was last Wednesday when 25 year olds Gregory Blanchett and Melissa Jilcott were arrested at a Woodrow Paulk Road home just outside of Lax.

Both were charged with manufacturing meth and possession with intent to distribute.

"I'm pretty sure we're going to be busting some more. It's becoming the number one drug in the South. It started in the north and it's moving its way south. Meth is a real dangerous drug too," says Sheriff Smith.

Smith also says there are serious medical threats to anyone who comes in contact with a meth lab. He urges anyone who suspects they've seen one to contact a law enforcement agency.
