Three people were arrested Thursday morning when narcotics investigators found two active meth labs inside a Waveland home.
Hancock County Narcotics Division Commander Jeremy Skinner said Thursday that deputies executed a search warrant at 1204 Toronto Street in Waveland about midnight Wednesday.
Three people, Destiny Tullos, 27, Patrick Gable, 32, and Benny Dardar, 27, were inside the home when deputies arrived, Skinner said.
Investigators found two meth labs inside the home, along with some finished product, and numerous precursors, Skinner said.
The three were apparently in the process of cooking meth, Skinner said. Deputies discovered a lab in the bathroom which was in "the beginning stages" of a cook; and an active cook in the attic, he said.
All three suspects were arrested and charged with manufacture of methamphetamine and generation of hazardous waste, Skinner said. Dardar was also charged with possession of a controlled substance. Tullos and Gable's bonds were both set at $10,000. Dardar's bond was set at $20,000.
The case remains under investigation.
Skinner said anyone who has information concerning illegal narcotics activity can call the sheriff's office narcotics division at 228-466-6917 or central dispatch at 228-255-9191.
