The community helped led to the finding of 14 meth labs and the arrest of a Lewis County man Tuesday night.

Lewis County Sheriff Adam Gissy said someone called the department about a suspicious odor on Edward Street. When officers arrived at the house, they found a meth lab in a bottle outside the home. They got a search warrant and found about 14 other labs around the area.
"Within this house was a little partitioned-off area that consequently had fans set up to blow the fumes, etcetera, outside that way it wouldn't be such a risk for the individuals inside. Consequently that helped us to obtain the search warrant and lead to the arrest," said Sheriff Gissy.

20-year-old Shane Michael Jeffries admitted to operating the labs there on more than one occasion.

Sheriff Gissy said the investigation continues and more charges are pending.
