Meth Lab Bust In Harrison County

A tip from two people riding four wheelers through the woods, that's how police say they discovered the remains of a methamphetamine lab in Harrison County. That discovery led to the arrest of 28 year old David Lee Nobles of Long Beach. Nobles faces a variety of drug related charges in connection with the newly discovered lab.

Nobles was arrested after Harrison County Sheriff Deputies were tipped off around ten o'clock Saturday morning about a possible meth lab in a wooded area near Sub Ladner Road in Harrison County.

After he left the area, two local residents called deputies with the license plate number to Nobles's car. Deputies later spotted the vehicle, pulling him over on Canal Road, where he was arrested.

Deputies say Nobles was already wanted for violating his probation on charges on possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver.

Nobles is charged with two counts of possession of precursor chemicals, one count of possession of methamphetamine, one count of manufacturing methamphetamine, and one count of manufacturing anhydrous ammonia.

A HAZMAT team from Mobile was called in to clean up the chemicals and tools used in the lab.

Investigators say the cost of the clean up will be more than ten thousand dollars.
