3 men charged after meth lab sends 3 deputies to hospital

MILLINGTON, TN (WMC) - Three people are charged after Shelby County Sheriff's deputies stumbled upon a meth lab in Millington while serving a warrant.

The lab was found Wednesday at a mobile home park on Thompson Street. It has since been evacuated and several people are being questioned in connection to it.

Coby Forbes, Andrew Rowe, and Douglas Magruder face multiple drug charges.

"You just never know who your neighbors are," said Debbie Reich, who was shocked to learn about the meth lab in her community. "Just stop doing it and stay away from our trailer park. We don't want that stuff around. We don't want any drugs. They're not good neighbors at all. They need to be gone, and I hope there's no one else around here like that."

The meth lab was found just feet away from where children play.

Three deputies were taken to the hospital to be checked out after inhaling fumes, but they are OK, according to Shelby County Sheriff's Office.
