A man who called authorities to report a robbery has been arrested by Hanceville police after they found a meth lab at his home.
Capt. Jimmy Rodgers said officers allegedly discovered a working meth lab at the home of 33-year-old Billy Floyd Norris. He was arrested Sunday for unlawful manufacturing of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of a controlled substance.
Rodgers said Norris reported he had been robbed by his roommates but police weren't able to verify the claim.
He said the lab was actually still producing meth when officers found it.
Also recovered were several ounces of crystal meth, all the ingredients used to manufacture the drug, drug paraphernalia, a 50-caliber rifle and two shotguns.
Norris is at the Cullman County Detention Center on a $1 million bond.
