MCMINN COUNTY, TN (WRCB) -

McMinn County deputies arrested three people for looting a house that had been quarantined after a meth bust.

The house had been quarantined less than two days when deputies say they found 20-year old Tyler Watson of Etowah; 23-year old Joseph Moses of Englewood; and 21-year old Christen Pike of Benton, loading items from the house into an SUV.

Among the stolen items were three weed trimmers and a pressure washer.

The three are facing theft and trespassing charges.

Police say thefts from quarantined houses affected by meth manufacturing are very common.
