BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - A methamphetamine lab was dismantled this week in the Dora area.
The Jefferson County Sheriff's office said the lab was discovered Monday night and led to the arrest of a woman who was already facing drug charges.
Sheriff's officials said in a statement Tuesday, the drug bust was unique because deputies found special chemicals were used to cook the often volatile drug.
It marked the first time investigators had seen the so-called "Cold Cook Method" used in the county.
38-year-old Tammy Marie Bryant was arrested for manufacturing meth. She was also charged with chemical endangerment of a child.
Deputies said Bryant's 5-year-old child was in the home.
Bryant was placed in the county jail under bonds totaling $110,000.
