Chemical Smell Leads to Meth Arrest

Agents with the 19th Judicial District Drug Task Force dismantled a methamphetamine lab on Tuesday night at a local apartment and arrested one woman, according to a Wednesday night press release.

Samantha Smith, 29, who gave an Executive Drive Apt. 2A address, was booked into Montgomery County Jail on charges of initiating the process of manufacturing methamphetamine.

“Clarksville Police Department responded to a call at the complex where children were complaining of a chemical smell and a burning sensation in their eyes,” said Sgt. Kyle Darnell, Director of the 19th JDDTF. “They called us for assistance and we searched the apartment”

Agents collected components used in creating methamphetamines, which lead to the quarantine of the entire building, as the apartments in the building share an attic and ventilation system.

“The neighbors, who were innocent in all this, found themselves displaced because of the meth being manufactured in the apartment,” Darnell said.

Along with CPD, Clarksville Fire Rescue and Montgomery County EMS provided assistance at the scene.
