Playing child stumbles across Kingsport meth lab

KIINGSPORT — A 7-year-old child playing in a wooded area off Kingsport's Barnett Drive located a one-pot meth lab Wednesday, along with the "gasser" portion of a second operation, but alerted his parents to the discovery and avoided potential injury.

"He came and told his parents there were some weird looking bottles," said Kingsport Police Department Vice Unit Det. Nathan Elliott, adding the devices contain a sugary in appearance by-product of meth's production.

"They're highly volatile and dangerous."
