Three people were arrested after authorities discovered that a meth lab exploded in a Hartselle home.
On Tues., Aug. 14, the Morgan County Drug Task Force conducted a “knock and talk” at 64 Thurman Road in Hartselle, after receiving complaints that the occupants of the residence were cooking methamphetamine.
Task force agents determined that methamphetamine had been cooked a few days prior and even discovered that a meth lab had exploded in the bathroom.
One of the suspects, Timothy Dion Woodall, had a swollen face due to the explosion, which also burned the bathroom. Remnants of that meth lab were found outside the home.
John Paul Partain, Timothy Dion Woodall and Kimberly Melissa Woodall were all charged with unlawful manufacturing a controlled substance in the first degree. They were being held in the Morgan County Jail, each with a $5,000 bond.
The task force believes that other persons were there and the investigation is ongoing.
