Hawkins deputy follows odor to suspected meth lab

ROGERSVILLE — A Hawkins County man is facing methamphetamine charges after a deputy passing his residence Monday detected an odor associated with meth manufacturing.

Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office Cpl. Brian Bogg was patrolling Route 113 early Monday when he detected the odor near 850 Route 113, Rogersville.

Boggs is a certified clandestine lab technician and a member of the Tennessee Meth Task Force.

“Corporal Boggs then attempted to make contact with someone at the address but was initially unsuccessful,” Sheriff Ronnie Lawson said. “Corporal Boggs notified the Narcotics Unit, who responded to the scene. While officers were on the scene, a male who was identified as Dwayne Brewer pulled into the residence in a green Ford Mustang.”
