MITCHELL COUNTY — The investigation of a Colquitt County burglary turned into a Mitchell County drug bust last week.

Colquitt County investigators received an anonymous tip that Michael and Jennifer Ricks of Mitchell County were the culprits in a burglary at 496 R.L. Sears Road, according a WALB.com report. When law enforcement went to the Ricks house on Old Doerun Road in Mitchell County, they allegedly found the components for a methamphetamine lab as well as items taken from the R.L. Sears Road residence.

Michael Ricks, 27, and Jennifer Ricks, 24, are both charged with burglary, possession of methamphetamine and manufacture of methamphetamine.

A hazardous materials company from Atlanta was called to dismantle the lab, WALB.com reported.
