MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Several suspects were arrested Friday in connection with a meth lab.
Investigators received an anonymous tip concerning a possible meth lab located at a campsite within Chickasabogue Park.
Park visitors Les and Marge Maelichar have been visiting the park from Montana. They said it's normally very peaceful and didn't know anyone had been arrested nearby.
"It's unfortunate that it's a problem all over the place. We even have it out in our area, too," Les Maelichar said.
Investigators said they were met by John Leavins, Larry Thrasher and Christina Lowery when they arrived at the park. Investigators said all three had active warrants for their arrest.
Some park visitor said they've seen them before.
"I've seen them driving through the park! I cannot believe this. This is such a nice place; I've been here for five months now. It just shocks me," said Char McSwain.
Investigators said Leavins, one of the residents of the trailer, had active felony warrants for his arrest out of Topeka, Kansas.
Investigators also said they found Lowery had an active probation revocation warrant out of Mississippi, and Thrasher had active misdemeanor warrants out of Mobile County.
While conducting the investigation at the trailer, meth and marijuana was discovered on Levin's person, and two meth labs were found in the trunk of Levin's car.
The investigation then took a detour from Chickasabogue Park to a home on Lott Road.
"In speaking with them we were able to determine that there was a second location with people they were acquainted with. They were actively cooking more meth." said Sgt. Joe Mahoney with the Mobile County Sheriff's Office.
When investigators got there, they said they saw open blister packs from pseudoephedrine pills scattered around the driveway and a burn pile.
Investigators said Alex Bishop opened the door and five additional people came out of the residence.
Investigators said the home owner, Tammy Bishop Lucas, denied investigators access to the residence. However, enough probable cause was established to obtain a search warrant for the residence.
Investigators said upon executing the search warrant, a total of five separate meth labs were located inside the residence.
Four guns were seized at the location along with a large quantity of finished crystal methamphetamine.
Investigators said Suzette Marie Zijouai, Tammy Bishop Lucas, Larry Lee Beacham and Alex Alonzo Bishop were arrested in connection with the meth labs.
All suspects are set appear in court Febuary 15.
