NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Detectives arrested four people after discovering a meth lab during a raid of a west Nashville home on Monday night.
A search warrant was executed at 40-year-old Robert Michael Martin's home in the 7600 block of Indian Creek Road after several months of investigation.
Detectives seized three grams of processed methamphetamine, eight firearms, 17 marijuana plants and evidence of products commonly used to manufacture meth—including empty pseudoephedrine packages, ether cans used as starter fluid, stripped lithium batteries, acetone, Coleman fuel and ammonium nitrate packages.
Martin and his girlfriend, 29-year-old Barbara Henry, of Camden, were arrested and charged with initiating the process to manufacture meth, possession of meth for resale and Crooks with Guns law violations.
Two other men at the home were also arrested. Police said 42-year-old James Edward Dixon is a suspected meth cook, and charged him with initiating the process to manufacture meth, promotion of meth manufacture and a Crooks with Guns law violation.
Anthony Wilson, 20, was charged with possession of marijuana for resale and a Crooks with Guns law violation.
Police said their investigation found the remote location of the property to be a choice spot for meth users to cook/manufacture the dangerous drug.
