BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Jefferson County authorities have busted
the third suspected methamphetamine lab in a week.
The deputies shut down the house after receiving a tip that they would find stolen property and a meth lab there.
Chief Deputy Randy Christian says authorities charged 23-year-old Kelly Michelle Jones with manufacturing a controlled substance. Her bond is set at $100,000.
They say a man fled into the woods when authorities arrived, and that he remains at large.
The deputies had busted two suspected labs nearby earlier this week as part of an effort to crack down on a rash of burglaries in the area.
