Two people were arrested after deputies found a "shake and bake" meth lab at a camper trailer in Bibb County.
Deputies responded to a call of a possible drug overdose at a trailer on County Road 36 in Randolph on Friday, Oct. 18 around 10:50 p.m.
No one answered the door, but deputies found several items used in making meth around the camper and in vehicles behind the camper.
Deputies obtained a search warrant and entered the trailer. Once inside, they found a man and a woman hiding as well as a working meth lab.
Thomas Jason Jones, 35, of Randolph and Christy Deann Deerman, 32, of Lawley, were taken into custody.
There were both charged with unlawful manufacturing of controlled substance, possession of precursor chemicals, unlawful possession of controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Jones and Deerman are being held at the Bibb County Jail. No bond has been set so far.
"The manufacturing of methamphetamines has become a growing problem because of the simplicity of shake and bake labs," Bibb County Sheriff Keith Hannah said in a release.
"They are among the hardest to track down because they are easy to use anywhere and can be disposed of quickly. I commend my deputies for the fast response they made to the camper and for following through with the tip they received to help take another meth maker off the street," Sheriff Hannah added.
