MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Autauga County authorities say a meth operation was busted and three people were arrested thanks to an anonymous tip.

Billy Ray Kizziah, 21, of Deatsville, Joe Davis Henderson, 22, of Marbury, and Kimberly Nicole Raper, 21, of Millbrook, were arrested and charged with unlawful manufacturing of a controlled substance second degree, according to the Autauga County Sheriff's Office.

All three were placed in the Autauga County Metro Jail under a $200,000 bond.

The Autauga County Sheriff's Office Special Operation Division executed a search in the 1700 block of Alpine Drive in Deatsville Wednesday.

Over the past few months, the agency has had numerous complaints from those in the neighborhood about suspicious drug activity, and they were able to pinpoint the location Wednesday.

Authorities found a laboratory that manufactured methamphetamine, a quantity of methamphetamine and assorted drug paraphernalia during the search of the residences.

The Montgomery Police Department's bomb squad also responded after an explosive device was discovered over a door. The device wasn't rigged as a booby trap at the time of the bust, but the bomb squad assisted as a precaution.

Additional charges are pending based on an investigation into the explosive device.

Chief Deputy Joe Sedinger with the Autauga County Sheriff's Office says a "shake and bake" meth lab was found inside the house. The "shake and bake" process of cooking meth is simpler, faster and cheaper than more elaborate labs and consists of mixing cold pills and chemicals in a bottle. 

"Over the past few months, we've had several complaints from folks in that neighborhood about meth being cooked and drugs being sold. We're happy to put another one of these operations out of business," Sedinger said.
