Domestic assault arrest leads to meth bust in same Sullivan County home

Posted: Updated:
PINEY FLATS, TN (WJHL) - What began as an arrest in a domestic assault case is now the scene of a meth lab bust inside the same Sullivan County home.

Monday night officers were called out to a home off Bristol Highway in Piney Flats where Dallas Young was arrested for assaulting his father.

Tuesday afternoon officers went to notify the family before the suspect was released from jail. When they arrived, both doors to the home were open. Officers knocked several times, but no one answered so they went inside to make sure everything was okay. 

Deputies tell News Channel 11 officers found two people, passed out, very intoxicated and an active meth operation.

Officers also found a total of 8 one-pot cook bottles, 13 gas generator bottles and several other meth making materials.

The two inside said the meth labs belonged to Young. 

Due to active meth labs being found inside the home, it has been quarantined.

The investigation is ongoing and investigators tell News Channel 11 charges are pending.
