The FDLE and agents from Leon and Jefferson Counties busted up a suspected meth lab Monday night.

Officers say since late April they've been investigating the lab at a mobile home off of Crawfordville Highway. Agents say they were tipped off by neighbors who reported a heavy volume of traffic as well as a very noxious smell.

"We have received complaints from different individuals, some of them are in the area, regarding odors emanating from the residence, and we also have informants who work for us that notified us of the goings on here," said CAPT Rob Swearingen from the Leon County Sheriff's Office.

Officers are removing chemicals from the lab so they can determine just how much meth was being produced. Officers say arrests are pending.
