A Dickson business has been quarantined after drug agents discovered a meth-making operation Wednesday night. Phillips Wholesale on Highway 46 was sealed off after agents removed five one-pot labs used to make methamphetamine in an apartment on the upper level of the building. David Ledbetter, who has a White Bluff address, was charged with initiating the manufacture of methamphetamine and felony possession of meth for resale. Agent Michael Pate of the 23rd Judicial District Drug Task Force said agents discovered the meth operation around 11 pm Wednesday after going to investigate information about an active meth lab. Pate said Dickson County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Clark Evans did an “excellent job” of developing information during a traffic stop Wednesday night that led to the discovery of the lab. Pate said as he and agents Chris Freeze and Josh Ethridge approached the apartment inside Phillips Wholesale, Ledbetter opened the door and “smoke came pouring out.” Pate said agents also detected an odor associated with making meth and could see paraphernalia used in the operation from the front door. Ledbetter was removed from the apartment and immediately decontaminated. Pate said agents found five one-pot meth labs in various stages inside the apartment as well as several bags of methamphetamine totaling a gram and a half. While agents were on the scene, two other individuals arrived and were found to have drug paraphernalia in their possession. Pate said those investigations are ongoing and would not release those suspects’ names. Because the apartment shares walls with the wholesale business in the large red building, Pate said agents ordered the building quarantined until a certified hazardous material company decontaminates the building. Ledbetter is being held in the Dickson County Jail on $120,000 bond. Pate said Ledbetter already was out on bond following a June indictment for promoting the sale of methamphetamine.
