JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

An anonymous tip led Jackson County Sheriff's deputies to two methamphetamine labs and numerous precursor chemicals Wednesday night.

Sheriff Charles Britt said deputies went to a house on Goff Farm Road in Hurley where they found a car with precursor chemicals in the trunk.  The owner of the car, 35-year-old Arvis Cecil Tolbert, was arrested at the scene and charged with possession of precursor chemicals.

Officials said Tolbert had recently been released from prison after serving 12 years for manufacturing meth.

Britt said deputies then proceeded to search the house on the property were they found two shake-and-bake meth labs in the attic along with additional chemicals. He said deputies also found 28-year-old Chasity Shanteen Fulton hiding in a closet next to a shotgun.

Authorities said the owner of the home, 41-year-old Russell Boler, was arrested and charged with possession of precursor chemicals, manufacturing methamphetamine and generation of hazardous waste. Britt said Boler was currently out of jail on bond for two drug charges from 2013. Boler's bail is expected to be revoked.

Officials said Fulton was arrested and charged with possession of precursor chemicals. Britt said she was out on parole for drug related charges when she was arrested. Fulton's parole officer placed a hold on her so she will not be able to bail out of the Jackson County Adult Detention Center.

Britt said all three suspects remain at the detention center and face up to 30 years in prison and up to $1 million in fines if convicted.
