DCS Home Visit Leads to Meth Lab Discovery

A home visit from the Department of Children’s Services (DCS), led to the arrest of 21-year-old Daniel Jacob Wilson after an accompanying officer from the Macon County Sheriffs Department discovered that methamphetamine was being manufactured by Wilson in the woods behind his home.

After entering the home with a DSC employee, Detective Troy Griggs spotted components commonly used to produce meth and, after further investigation, discovered the shake-and-bake method lab in the woods directly behind the home.

Macon County Sheriffs Department officers Larry West and Darrell Taylor were called to the scene to process the lab, and Wilson was taken into custody on the charge of Manufacturing of Narcotics. He is being held at the Macon County Jail on $15,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in General Sessions Court on August 24th. The child was taken into DCS custody until a family member could be contacted.
