BRISTOL, Tenn. -

A dangerous find in the Tri-Cities Thursday night adds to the list in what's becoming a local epidemic; Sullivan County Vice and Narcotics detectives say they uncovered parts of another meth lab.

Authorities tell us they went to a Bristol home after getting a tip that Robert Mutter, II may be making meth. The detectives arrested Mutter on outstanding warrants out of Bristol, Virginia for violation of probation and failure to appear.

We're told he gave consent to search and that's when officers say they discovered components of a meth lab. The investigation is ongoing.
