Americus-  As many as three drug suspects were being questioned at the Sumter County Sheriff's office Thursday. They could be charged with manufacturing methamphetamines.

Sumter County deputies, the Albany Dougherty Drug Unit, and the GBI dismantled a Meth lab inside an apartment on Earl Street just off of Lee Street overnight.

Three people were taken into custody, their names have not yet been released. The three were returning from the store where they had recently purchased more ingredients to make Meth.

Sheriff Pete Smith says, the situation was dangerous because of the highly flammable chemicals in close proximity to other homes.
