During a routine response to a domestic dispute Wednesday, Mt. Juliet police officers found a small methamphetamine lab.

Mt. Juliet Police were called to the 200 block of Whitnell Drive in reference to a domestic-related argument around 10:40 a.m.

While investigating, officers found an active, one-pot style meth lab in a minivan parked in the driveway of the home at 226 Whitnell Drive.

Hazmat units were called in to decontaminate the scene and properly dispose of the potentially dangerous materials.

A 32-year-old man, who was involved in the domestic dispute, had burns on his leg, which he got before today’s incident. After he was decontaminated, he was transported to the hospital for treatment. 

According to Mt. Juliet police Lt. Tyler Chandler, no arrests were made Thursday in connection with the meth lab, but charges remained pending.
