Marshall County detectives responded to the report of a suspicious object on the side of the road at the corner of 14th and Joe Creason Drive.

According to Detective Kevin Mighell and Detective Don Tidwell, the "generator" contained chemicals, including sulfuric acid, that are commonly used in making meth.
