TRINITY, AL (WAFF) -

Five people are in jail after a meth bust in Morgan County.

It happened at the Heritage Estate Trailer Park off Gordon Terry Parkway in Trinity, Wednesday night.

According to Sheriff Ana Franklin, authorities received calls from neighborhood residents, complaining about traffic at the mobile homes, an abundance of trash, along with odd smells. The complaints led to a several months-long investigation.

Wednesday night, deputies arrested five people after searching three mobile homes. The suspects had to be decontaminated before they were transported to jail.

Authorities arrested Mary Louise Amerson, Lisa Compton, James Reeves, and James Sieglock. All were charged with unlawful manufacturing of a controlled substance, trafficking meth, and felony possession of drug paraphernalia. Deputies also arrested Randy Teague and charged him with illegal purchase or attempt to purchase pseudoephedrine.

Sheriff Franklin said that authorities have been making more drug arrests over the last year and that they've seen other crime rates, like burglaries, go down.

"Our goal is to deter other crimes and if that means that we have to arrest folks and have them in jail with me so that they're not out, committing other crimes, that's exactly what we're going to continue to do," said Franklin.

Sheriff Franklin said they're still looking for a few more people and more arrests could be on the way.
