Burglary Ring Arrest Leads to Meth Bust in Coffee County

An on-going investigation into a Coffee and Geneva County burglary ring leads authorities to an operations crystal methamphetamine lab.

With a search warrant, investigators raided a mobile home on Coffee County Road 716 in the Battens community.

They reportedly discovered stolen jewelry, electronics and firearms.

That's in addition to the meth lab and the chemicals used to make the highly addictive narcotic.

"We were here on burglary of items in several cases that we were working on when we were inside and found the meth lab inside," said Chief Deputy Ronnie Whitworth.

Authorities are in the process of making several arrests connected to the burglaries and meth manufacture.
