BRISTOL — Two people have been arrested after the alleged discovery of a methamphetamine operation at a tent along the northern most part of Sullivan County.

The incident occurred Monday on Sweet Hollow Road, east of South Holston Lake at the Virginia border. Sullivan County Sheriff's Office personnel responded to the property on a tip that Dustin James Stamper, 34, of Rhymer Road in Damascus, Va., was making meth at a tent. 

When police arrived they allegedly observed a smoking bottle that contained a white substance. SCSO Public Information Officer Leslie Earhart says the property owner consented to a search, saying Stamper and a female had been staying in the tent for the past week.
