MT. JULIET, Tenn. – A Wilson County man was arrested after Tennessee Bureau Investigation agents discovered a methamphetamine lab inside his Mt. Juliet barn.
Carroll Johnson Cook, age 49, was charged with initiating the process to manufacture meth and meth possession. He was taken to the Wilson County Jail Wednesday.
