Police Raid Meth Lab in Coffee County

Authorities say a late night raid nets a fully operational meth lab in rural Coffee County.

Bradley Eagerton and Karla Lee face a host of drug related charges.

They include manufacturing of a controlled substance, trafficking in meth and possession of marijuana.

Investigators say the suspects were involved in making the drug when the raid took place.

The home is located in Coffee County’s New Hope Community, near the Pike County line.

At this time, Eagerton and Lee are also expected to face an additional charge of chemical endangerment of a child.

    It takes more than one person to break up a "family". It takes a willing person from each "family"--that is two (2) willing people. And I've always heard you can't lose something you never had. The person who posted the last comment probably should do a little investigating and get all the facts before making an assumption that Brad's "dad" is the bad person. I guess if there were more saints such as this one on this earth, there would be no drug activity.

    What goes around, comes around. Brad's dad is responsible for breaking up one family so it's only expected that it would eventually come around. I would do drugs too, if my Dad spent his off time at another man's home.

    I also believe we should be praying for this family rather than kicking them when they are down. I dare say not one of the people who posted ugly comments and were so judgemental are free from the possibility of having something like this happen to a member of their family. Drugs are powerful and ruin lives--and satan is not choosy as to whose life he destroys. People who live in glass houses should not throw stones.

    Brad needs to be helped....thats the peoblem with people that write comments like the ones posted already, they want to talk about others and their families when guartanteed they are probably doing the same thing. They just havent been lucky enough to get caught yet!

    Instead of pointing fingers, we such be lifting this family up in our prayers...this could have happend to anyones family. Don't kick them when they are down. I pray that Brad gets the help he needs, meanwhile I am praying for each and everyone of you!

    i know this has been a real embarrasment for the Eagerton family , they are all such good people, but like most families there are always at least one bad egg in every family, and i would say Brad is definately the bad egg.

    this fool should have been locked up years ago, but someone keeps getting him off because they know the "right people".

    The only effective way to deal with the explosion of Meth labs and drugs is a swift, "real" death penalty. Unfortunately, we have become cowards who worry more about the criminal's rights then the victims.
