A tip from a 911 caller Wednesday night led authorities with the East Mississippi Drug Task Force to an active meth lab.

It was found in a residence in the 1000 block of Frederickson Road in the northern part of Lauderdale County.

Two suspects were taken into custody. According to Chief Deputy Ward Calhoun, one of the suspects allegedly fled the scene, but was later apprehended by authorities.

No charges have been filed in the case. Calhoun says the investigation is in the early stages. Several young children were discovered at the scene. For this reason, the Department of Human Services was contacted.

Officials from the task force, the sheriff's department and several volunteer fire departments will spend much of the night working with a professional cleaning crew out of Jackson that is trained to clean such scenes. Meth labs are extremely dangerous.

    thanx much for your genuine concern there lyn the linx are for the non brain surgeon/rocket scientists here that are able to navigate around the whirrled wider than what's local, unlike yourself. one is some of my recordings on the live music archive at archive dot org, as I am an archivist. the other, merely a social networking site. I am real and ain't afraid of a dang thang. we know from history what good meth hath brought upon this Earth, none. remember the kamikaze or the short dude with the lil mustache? forget what history is not myth and be doomed to live it out in re-runs only much closer to home.

    Jmo: Everyone is saying don't judge them . I have always said to each his own ,as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else . Well this does ,It was a very dangerous situation to put those childeren in ,and they like all of us were taught right from wrong at a early age so take your punishment and dont cry in your milk about it ... and yes I have the right to say what I want to . How would you like to live across the street from a meth lab ? Well I did until last Thursday and this is a good neighborhood and these people were not doing this because they need money .thank you Lauderdale Co for trying to make all our neighborhoods safe for our kids and grandkids.

    step on your toes there got to love it; but remember some are born fit for destruction as others born to be justified...... I didnt assume anything thing only attacked the stupid acts of what happened and not judged their souls.... when you are able to understand comprehend the doctrines of scriptures.. and not spout off what the fool with the indoctrinated degree teaches then rebuke me.. shakes my head.. this is ended.
