METH LAB CHARGES

Loudon County Sheriff Tim Guider today announced formal charges against brother and sister duo Steven James Bowers, age 22, and Monica Renee McCulloch, age 29, of 309 Abbott Rd, Lenoir City, after the discovery Saturday of several "One-Pot" Methamphetamine labs at the Abbott Rd Address in Lenoir City.

Officers were attempting to serve a warrant for Violation of Probation on McCulloch when they found what was believed a one pot bottle used in the manufacture of Methamphetamine. After escorting the residents from the home, investigators found 12 additional one pot meth labs inside the residence. The TN Meth Task Force was called to the residence to assist with the hazardous materials cleanup efforts where numerous meth making materials were discovered throughout the house. In addition to the drug and probation violation charges, Elder Abuse charges were also placed against both siblings because their mother, who also lives at the house, is disabled. The warrant states the two "knowingly and willfully allowed her to remain in the residence while Methamphetamine was being manufactured, exposing her to fumes of the manufacturing process as well as chemicals used in the process."
