BRENTWOOD, Tenn.- In the Cool Springs area Sunday afternoon, police found a potentially explosive situation in a busy parking lot.
A woman is in custody after Brentwood police found her involved with the suspected meth lab. While ingredients for making meth were found, no meth was actually being cooked at the time.
Police were checking the Target parking lot in Brentwood when they say they saw a woman acting suspicious. When they spoke with the woman, they found out there are several warrants out of Kentucky and Tennessee for her. When they investigated further, they found the ingredients that are used to manufacture meth.
Detectives from the Vice and Narcotics units wore hazmat suits as a precaution when investigating the scene.
The Target was not evacuated and police said the shoppers were safe.
"Right now it's well underhand. The first glance that we got at the precursors that are involved in this did not cause any alarm or need for evacuation of area businesses," said Charlie Warner from the Franklin Police Department. "Right now all we are really trying to do is identity the substances that are inside and see how complex or simple this issue really is."
Franklin and Brentwood Police were both working on this investigation.
