(WMC-TV) - A meth bust early Friday morning landed two people in jail and rattled residents in an East Memphis apartment complex.

Officers arrested two people at the Summer East Apartments off of Bartlett Road near White Station and Summer.

Apartment neighbors said the meth bust left them frightened.

"That jug could have really killed all of us if it would have blown up," said neighbor Dixie Smith.

"Got a lot of kids around here, there's a school down the street," said neighbor Shelley Simmons.  "This whole apartment complex could have blown up."

Officers working with the Tennessee Meth Task Force got a complaint call early Friday morning tipping them off to what was going on inside one of the units at the Summer East Apartments.

"These individuals make enough for themselves and their friends to get high, do whatever, and then they start over the next day," said Lt. F. Winston.
