SWEETWATER-Proving that you can keep an alleged methamphetamine lab anywhere, two men were arrested Sunday after authorities said they were spotted walking down Greenbriar Road outside of Sweetwater.

Monroe County Sheriff's Detective Ben Bakers said he went to Greenbriar Road after Deputy Tillman Steele said he had detained two men after 911 received a call that they were walking down with road with a meth lab.

Steele said he stopped Mickey Brian Taylor and Joseph Dunkin to see what was going on and noticed some plastic tubing sticking out of Dunkin's pocket. Steele said he told the men he was going to search them, but before he could do that, Taylor allegedly pulled a "shake bottle" out of his pants pocket and dropped it on the ground.
