MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -

Murfreesboro police discovered meth lab components at an apartment complex near Middle Tennessee State University late Monday afternoon. Wednesday Murfreesboro police released the names of the two people arrested in that bust.

The discovery was made at a unit at Campus Crossings located at 285 North Rutherford Boulevard just before 4:30 p.m. Monday.

Police spokesperson Kyle Evans said the components were in various stages of the manufacturing process.

Murfreesboro police, alongside the Tennessee Meth Task Force have since removed the components and quarantined the unit.

"I looked outside my window and there were cops and police in HAZMAT suits," one resident told Nashville's News 2.

Nearby resident, Amber Wade added, that she did not know the occupants inside the unit, I-102.

"I don't know who they are," she said. "[It was] definitely not expected. I talked to my mom and she asked if I smelled anything. [I] guess I never paid attention. Needless to say, I'm kind of freaking out a little bit."

Authorities said no other apartments at the complex were in danger or were exposed to the hazardous materials.

Residents were notified of the incident via a letter which stated in part, "We have been informed of criminal activity on site. We understand this to be an isolated situation which authorities are actively investigating."

Murfreesboro police arrested 32-year-old Jessica Zebari and 29-year-old Carl Toombs. They each face several charges, including felony reckless endangerment, initiation of meth and felony possession of drug paraphernalia.
