The Houston County Sheriff's Office arrested three Crockett residents Tuesday in connection to a meth-lab bust in the city limits.

According to a press release from the sheriff's office, the narcotics division received information of an active meth lab on the 100 block of Durrett Street.

Investigators arrived at the home and were allowed into the house, where they found enough evidence to request a search warrant, according to the report.

Deputies arrested Shannon Kellum, 27, Jason Hamlin, 38, and Mark Hanson, 41, all of Crockett. They are charged with manufacturing a controlled substance. Bond is set for $40,000 for Kellum and Hamlin and $30,000 for Hanson.
