“She said the barrels helped weigh (the truck down) and get up the drive,” added another neighbor, with a roll of the eyes.
“She asked me to take her to the pharmacy and I said, ‘Hell no.’”
Sullivan County Animal Control also responded to the scene. According to residents of the park, the woman owned “six or seven” dogs.
About four hours into deconstruction and cleanup of the site, a man and woman arrived. They asked EMS personnel if they could take the suspect’s dogs but were told to contact the animal shelter.
Several agencies responded to investigate, secure and then clean up the location. Responders included SCSO vice and narcotics officers, Kingsport Police Department HazMat, Sullivan County EMS, Sullivan County Volunteer Fire Department and the Tennessee Methamphetamine Task Force.
Sullivan County fire and rescue personnel said the home and law enforcement who entered it, as well as the suspect, would have to be decontaminated before leaving the scene.
