A multi-agency compliance check on all 64 registered sex offenders in Weakley County led to the discovery of a meth lab.
During the compliance check at 2106 Parks Well Road near Gleason, an active meth lab was allegedly found inside the residence of Damion Paul Beam, 42, according to the Weakley County Sheriff’s Department. He was arrested along with Jessica Summer Milligan.
Both were charged with manufacture of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine and promotion of meth manufacture. Milligan listed her address at 120 Carter St. in Martin.
Investigators from the Weakley County Sheriff’s Department quarantined the residence at 2106 Parks Well Road. A quarantine of a residence is done after evidence is found that meth was actually made inside the house. Once quarantined, no one can live in the residence until it is certified as fit to live in by a state approved HAZMAT contractor, which usually cost the homeowner $5,000 to $10,000.
The discovery of this meth lab brought to 23 the total number of labs or lab dump sites found in Weakley County this year. In 2012, a total of 24 labs were found in the county.
Also, Anjelika Tansil, 25, was found at one of the homes and arrested after it was discovered that she had a bench warrant for failure to appear.
