FAIRVIEW, Tenn. -

A routine traffic stop early Tuesday morning led to the discovery of a meth making operation underneath the Fairview home of a local pastor.

Fairview police arrested the pastor's daughter, Sophia Woods, and her boyfriend, Timothy Williams, after pulling over Williams' vehicle over for a tag violation around 4:30 a.m.

A K-9 alerted officers to meth making ingredients in the vehicle.  Officers also found two grams of meth inside.

A subsequent search of the pastor's home in the 7200 block of Grammer Road, where Williams and Woods reside, revealed four separate meth labs in the crawl space under the home.

"When I made contact she was peeling skin off her face," Officer Seth Goodwin said. "She didn't even realize how bad a shape she was in."

Woods' father, David Dotson, who is ill yet still ministers area residents, told police he had no knowledge of the meth lab.

"There were just a few bottles sitting by the opening of the crawl space and when they pulled that out, the rain hit it, it flamed up into a huge fireball," Dotson told Nashville's News 2.

Dotson was shocked and saddened that his daughter put the family in such danger, especially Woods' three-year-old niece who also lives in the home.

"It was very near where she sleeps, where the baby sleeps. We couldn't believe that Sophia would do that," Dotson said.

Dotson is now warning other unsuspecting parents to keep an eye on their children, even if their children are grown adults.

"If I had gone through her pocketbook at 30, I might have known by the things that she had in it," said Dotson.

Both suspects face charges of manufacturing meth and child endangerment.

The arresting officer, Goodwin, told Nashville's News 2 Williams was on probation for a previous meth charge.

Police said additional charges are pending.

The meth lab is the second found in Williamson County in the last two weeks.

The other lab was discovered by Williamson County sheriff's deputies in the Nolensville area on November 25 after deputies responded to a domestic violence complaint on Nolensville Road.

While serving an aggravated assault warrant on James Mayes, deputies found items in the house consistent with meth.

Deputies got a search warrant and discovered a meth lab.

Mayes was charged with aggravated assault, manufacturing of meth, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a handgun by felon.

He was booked into the Williamson County jail on a $250,000 bond.
