MURFREESBORO, TN (WSMV) -

Rutherford County Sheriff's deputies found 82 bottles used to manufacture illegal methamphetamine at a Rockvale home on Monday.

The 82 bottles found was the most "shake and bake" bottles ever seized in Tennessee.

The investigation began when deputies arrested Stacy Lynn Brown on arrest warrants from Greene County, TN. When Brown was taken into custody, deputies found 3 grams of meth with him.

Brown consented to allowing deputies to search his home, where they found the bottles of meth.

"In my opinion, methamphetamine has become an epidemic in this state and a huge problem and a liability for the citizens of Rutherford County due to the fact that the state is running out of money for methamphetamine cleanup," said Rutherford County Sheriff Robert Arnold in a news release.

Charges are pending against Brown.

This was the fourth methamphetamine-related call the sheriff's department has received in the past week. The other calls included a 2-liter bottle of discarded methamphetamine found Saturday on Halls Hill Pike, ingredients for producing meth found in a vehicle Sunday during a traffic stop and methamphetamine located in a small storage building Monday on Amerson Court off Old Woodbury Highway. Suspects have been tentatively identified.

Sheriff's narcotics detectives have located nine illegal meth labs this year.
