LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

Lee County deputies discovered an inactive meth lab, all because of a traffic crash.    

27 year old Christopher Riley was arrested for DUI and motor vehicle theft after a wreck on U. S. 19 Monday.   

While investigating the stolen car he was driving, they discovered an inactive meth lab at 52 year old Talmadge Beckhum's home, in the 300 block of Highway 32 West.      

"The officers went to the scene, and saw evidence of a meth lab and locked it down.  And called the people out to properly discard of the met lab stuff," said Lee Co. Sheriff Reggie Rachals.  

 Rachals said his drug unit continues to investigate the inactive meth lab, for other people who might be involved in its operation.
