LEBANON, Tenn. -

Three people were charged after authorities found a meth lab Tuesday afternoon at a Wilson County motel.

The lab was found at the Travel Inn on Murfreesboro Road in Lebanon.

Officers responded to the scene after receiving complaints of an odor coming from one of the rooms.

Upon entering, they could see and smell the meth lab.  Everyone inside the room was evacuated as meth technicians were called to process the scene.

Jarrod Griffith, 34, of Gallatin, and Candas Boatwright, 32, of La Vergne, were each charged with promotion of methamphetamine manufacture and manufacturing methamphetamine.

Police reported Griffith had an outstanding warrant in Wilson County on an unrelated charge and the incident was the third time Boatwright received a methamphetamine-related charge in Lebanon over the past six months.

The room both men were in was registered to 41-year-old Nick Roath of Lebanon, who was staying in another room under his name.

Roath was found to be in possession of methamphetamine and was charged with possession of schedule II drugs.

Lebanon officials added this is the fifth meth lab found by local authorities since the beginning of the year.
