Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Metro Police have arrested three people after a tip led them to the discovery of a mobile meth lab.

Officials said they received a tip about suspected drug activity at a home on Shasta Drive in South Nashville Tuesday night. When officers arrived on scene they found Corey Banks, 24, and Peter York, 35. A woman, who was also home, 35-year-old Jessica Mayberry, fled the scene.

Police said when questioned about the suspicious drug activity, Banks removed two bags from his mother's car. The bags contained instruments and materials used for making meth. After further search of the car, police found two packages of pseudoephedrine, other chemicals, tubing, plastic baggies, digital scales, plastic bottles and other drug paraphernalia.

Mayberry was arrested early Wednesday morning, when police found her passed out on the steps inside a building at Candlewood Apartments on Whispering Oaks Place.

All three suspects were arrested and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia for manufacture and also initiation of the manufacture of methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of a childcare facility.
