UPDATE: Three women arrested in Elkmont drug bust

ELKMONT — An anonymous tip led Limestone County Sheriff’s investigators to bust a meth lab, seize pills and arrest three women Monday night on Puckett Lane in Elkmont, Sheriff Mike Blakely said.

Arrested on charges of first-degree manufacturing, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia were Elizabeth Sue Barron, 33, of 27718 Puckett Lane; Crystal Lynne Fuqua, 22, of 26335 Johnson Lane, Lot, 1, Toney; and Lisa Darlene Miller, 48, of 27712 Puckett Lane, records show.

Acting on a tip, narcotics officers went to Barron's home on Puckett Lane and found one active methamphetamine lab, one meth lab under construction, a small amount of crystal meth, smoking pipes and other drug paraphernalia, the sheriff said.

All three women are being held in the Limestone County Jail with bail set at $56,000.
