Two people were arrested after detectives were given a tip about a meth lab inside a detached building at a west Nashville home.

Police executed search warrant at the home in the 5400 block of Illinois Avenue, closing the street for several hours.

According to an affidavit, officers found an HCL gas generator, hydrogen peroxide, pseudoephedrine, a large amount of lithium batteries, rubber tubing, glue sticks, aluminum foil strips, coffee filters, digital scales and other ingredients known to be used for making methamphetamines using the one-pot method.

They said they also found several cut straws with residue, digital scales and small baggies, plus baggies already filled with a white substance that field-tested positive for meth.

Brian Williams, 35, and Monica Adkins, 36, who live at the address, were both arrested on charges of manufacturing meth.

Adkins allegedly told police she is the owner of the residence and Williams reportedly admitted he has lived there for four months.

They were both decontaminated and booked into the Metro jail.

Williams is being held in lieu of $50,000 bond, while Adkins’ bond is set at $30,000.
