Dalton Police bust meth lab

Posted: Updated:

DALTON, GA (WRCB) -- A large meth lab was uncovered Thursday night in Dalton, GA.

The Dalton Police Department spent several months in an undercover drug operation, investigating the sale of meth by Bruce Wayne Bailey and his son, Chayne Allen Bailey.

Bruce Wayne Bailey, 45, of 521 Monroe-Green Road in Trion, Chayne Allen Bailey, 23, and Katherine Leighann Wheat, 21, both of 900 Vernon Avenue were all arrested and charged for their roles in the manufacture or distribution of methamphetamine.

The lab is described as an "old school" type of meth lab, using red phosphorous. More recently, meth producers have switched to the single-pot "shake and bake" methodology.

The Cohutta Police Department responded to the scene to help investigators secure and dismantle the lab.

The cleanup cost is estimated at $10,000 which is covered by the GBI.
