Three people are in jail, accused of running what is being called a "very large" methamphetamine operation Wednesday.
Deputies were originally called to the home at 19536 Big Pine Rd. in Laurelville after receiving tip of a possible meth lab.
Upon arrival, deputies spoke with three residents, and a warrant was obtained and executed at the home.
The search revealed a very large methamphetamine manufacturing operation, the sheriff's office said.
Emergency crews were called to provide clean-up and decontamination.
The residents, Cassandra L. Davis, 45, Frank A. Davis Jr., 43, and Nancy A. Caudill, 43, were arrested and charged with illegal assembly or possession of chemicals for manufacturing of drugs. Caudill and Cassandra Davis, were transported to the Fairfield County Jail due to female bed space shortage at the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail. Frank Davis was transported to the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail.
All three suspects will be arraigned in Hocking County Municipal Court.
Other charges will likely be presented before the Hocking County Grand Jury at a later date. Cassandra Davis and Caudill were arrested recently for possession of methamphetamine and other narcotics by Laurelville police.
