Eight people were arrested on Monday after a warrant service turned up a house full of methamphetamine and related materials in the Fowlkes community.
Dyersburg police, accompanied by Dyer County deputies, attempted to serve an arrest warrant at about 11 a.m. for Brian Lynn Prater, 23, 323 1st Avenue, Evansville, for the December burglary of a gun. Prater was located at the 65 Peach Road address, as well as seven other people.
When the police and deputies smelled the odor of methamphetamine, said Sheriff Jeff Holt, "we acted."
Within minutes, reinforcements arrived, with the Dyersburg Fire Department standing by for decontamination and a Dyersburg Regional Medical Center ambulance crew positioned on Highway 210 for medical issues.
The meth search team briefs deputies, police and firefighters on what was found inside the house.
Six of the people, aside from Prater, were taken into custody in the house -- Danny Ray Jones, 35, 65 Peach Rd.; Donnie Dale Jones, 45, 545 Jamestown-Jenkinsville Rd.; Mabel Maxine Jones, 41, 545 Jamestown-Jenkinsville Rd.; Jeffery Alan Long, 22, 210 W. Main St., Halls; Adam Neal Hogeland, 24, 4710 Hwy. 104 W.; James Ivan Riley, 32, 148 Pecan Ln.; and Gena Ruth Lee, 24, 715 W. Wheeler St.
Each of the eight suspects is charged with the possession, delivery and sale of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. No bonds had been set for any of the suspects as of press time Tuesday.
Hogeland did not come out with the warrant service. A team of two police and a deputy, each wearing protective outergarments with self-contained air tanks entered the house at about 1 p.m. to examine the interior and remove the lone holdout.

Hogeland exited the house through the garage and was escorted to the front yard, where he was hosed off by firefighters.
Court dates were expected to be set today.
