Meth Lab Materials Found Near Shopping Center

Posted at 10:28 PM, Mar 07, 2016

Just one day after an active meth lab was found outside a McDonalds in Wilson County, more lab components were discovered.

Police and HAZMAT units rushed to the Mt. Juliet Village shopping center Monday night hoping to safely dispose of the hazardous materials.

No injuries were reported. Investigators found the items about 300 yards from a mobile meth lab found early Sunday morning.

They found an active one-pot or "shake and bake" lab near the McDonalds dumpster. Police tied that meth lab to 41-year old Patrick Decker.

It was unclear if he was facing additional charges from Monday night’s bust.
