Five people have been arrested on drug charges after officers discovered a meth lab underneath a trap door in a DeKalb County, Ala., home.
Drug Task Force agents were originally visiting William Andrew Baker's home on July 17 to serve a felony warrant, according to a news release from the DeKalb County Sheriff's office.
When Baker saw the agents, he ran into the house, which contained drug paraphernalia in plain view, the release states.
After an intensive search they found a trap door leading under the house.
James Grant Hathcock, 34, of Guntersville, and Rachel Dawn Anderson, 19, of Albertville were hiding there with a meth lab and the ingredients to make another meth lab, according to the release.
Anthony Wayne Andrews, 21, of Fyffe, and John Russell Grandstaff, 31, of Danville were also arrested.
