Narcotics officers bust meth lab

— Complaints about a man making methamphetamine in his Elkmont home triggered a bust Wednesday night along with a man’s arrest, an official said.

Limestone Sheriff Chief Investigator Stanley McNatt said Lt. Josh McLaughlin and Investigator Justin Flanagan had gone to a home at 27016 New Bethel Road about 7:30 p.m. to investigate complaints about someone cooking meth at the home.

“They knocked on the door and were invited in and given permission to search,” McNatt said.

The officers discovered a meth lab in the house and a meth pipe and other drug paraphernalia on the body of Randall Daly, 57, McNatt said.

They arrested him on charges of first-degree manufacturing a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, records show.

Daly was taken to the Limestone County Jail, where bail has been set at $56,000.
