Meth cleanup continues from Carter County 'super lab'

ELIZABETHTON — The Carter County Sheriff's Department continued Wednesday to detoxify and clean up the remains of what has been described as the largest clandestine methamphetamine laboratory ever found in Carter County. The lab was discovered on Tuesday, and trained agents began the cleanup process.

 Sheriff Chris Mathes called a halt to the process as it became dark because of the hazardous working conditions in the home, which did not have electricity or water.

 One man has been arrested in the raid. Timothy Lee Blackwell, 43, was charged with six counts of initiation of methamphetamine manufacture, promotion of methamphetamine manufacture, possession of felony drug paraphernalia, aggravated burglary, possession of Schedule I drug, violation of probation and attachment for child support.
