BLUFF CITY — A methamphetamine waste dump site described by law enforcement as Sullivan County's largest ever was discovered Tuesday afternoon in a vacant home near Bluff City.

Sullivan County Sheriff's Office Public Information Officer Leslie Earhart said more than 30 trash bags of meth waste were discovered in a crawl space under the home, which is located on the 500 block of Ryder Church Road.

"The trash bags were full of nothing but meth waste," Earhart said. "We're basically talking about one-pot bottles, gasser bottles, blister packs, muriatic acid, and various other items used in the meth-making process."
