UNION GROVE, Ala. (WHNT) – Law enforcement officials say they arrested one man in a home that had a meth lab on Cedar Ridge Drive in Union Grove.  The bust took place Thursday.

The Marshall County Drug Task Force Unit, Marshall County Sheriff’s Office, and Morgan County Sheriff’s Office say Clark Kelly Walker, 31, is charged with unlawful manufacturing of a controlled substance. He lived in the home.

Sheriff Scott Walls said two minor children were found inside. They are now in the custody of the Department of Human Resources.

The operation was a “red phosphorus” meth lab, which was common years ago.  This process of cooking meth has been replaced by a quicker method, known as “one pot” or “shake and bake.”
