3 arrested after meth lab found at Giles County home

Posted:
GILES COUNTY, Tenn. -

Three adults face multiple charges including child abuse after a meth lab was discovered at a Giles County home early Tuesday morning.

Deputies were initially called to the home located on Campbellsville Road near the Maury County line due to a disturbance.

Upon arriving to the home, authorities saw a bottle commonly used to manufacture methamphetamine that was smoking from recent use.

Deputies also reported smelling a strong odor that is commonly produced by the manufacture of methamphetamine.

Forty-one-year-old Jennifer Nichols and 50-year-old Larry Nichols, who live at the home, and 40-year-old Denise Beavers of Nashville, were all taken into custody.

Four children were also removed from the home. Three of the children, ages 14, 16 and 17, are said to have lived at the home.

The home has since been quarantined by the Giles County Sheriff's Department.

At the time of her arrest, Jennifer Nichols was on probation for previous drug charges. Beavers was also on probation for manufacturing meth.

All three adults are charged with aggravated child abuse and neglect and initiation of methamphetamine among other charges.

The trio remains jailed on $151,000 bonds.
