JONESBORO -- Police were in downtown Jonesboro Tuesday when they smelled what they thought were the chemicals used in making methamphetamine. The Drug Task Force was immediatly called in to investigate. It was then when officers discovered a working meth lab located inside a loft apartment located at 316-C on Main Street.

Police say someone was on their way to making about one ounce of meth. That one ounce has a street value of about three thousand dollars. If something had gone wrong during the cooking process of the meth, the lab could have exploded and caused a fire.

A 44-year-old female has been arrested in connection to the lab. Police say they expect more arrest to be made in the future. This was the second meth bust Jonesboro Police have made this week. Another lab was found in north Jonesboro on Monday.
