Deputies looking for meth lab maker

August 3, 2004

Colquitt County - South Georgia authorities broke up a meth lab, but they're still looking for the man behind the potentially explosive set up.

The lab was found in the woods behind a house at 3763 Thigpen Trail in Colquitt County.

Clear liquid, found in jars, tested positive for methamphetamine.

It took a certified clean up crew four hours to take apart the lab. Sheriff Al Whittington says, "We have taken fingerprints from some of the items that were there and have matched with one known drug suspect and warrants have been issued for his arrest at this time."

Investigators will not release the name of the suspect until they make an arrest.

The meth found at the lab was worth approximately $9,200.
