Mitchell County-  In the search for two burglary suspects, investigators from Colquitt and Mitchell Counties find the components for a Meth lab.

Colquitt County investigators got an anonymous tip that it was 27 year old Michael and 24 year old Jennifer Ricks who burglarized a home at 496 R.L. Sears Road. When they went to the Ricks home at 346 Old Doerun Road in Mitchell County they found the components for a meth lab as well as the items stolen from the R.L. Sears Road address.

The Ricks are in the Colquitt County jail charged with burglary, possession of Methamphetamine, and manufacturing. HazMat from Atlanta was called in to dismantle the lab.
