According to Bryan Hammons, a detective with the Grayson County Sheriff's Department, the meth lab was found on January 2.
"A woman ( her name was not released) had been renting the house," Hammons said, "and after being away from the home for several months, she returned to find some things that had not been there before."
After being alerted to what the woman found, authorities with the Sheriff's Department and Hardin County Drug Task Force discovered what Hammons described as "an active meth lab."
"We found starting fluid cans, Mountain Dew bottles with tubing and pretty much everything it takes to manufacture meth inside and outside the residence," Hammons reported.
While the Sheriff's Department has several good leads as to who is responsible for the meth lab, they have not released the names of any suspects.
According to Hammons, they expect to make an arrest over the course of the next week or two.
Hammons also released on Monday a list of warning signs that may indicate the presence of an operational meth lab.
"Many people may be living next to a meth lab and not even know it," Hammons said.
