Two Tennessee people have been arrested on meth manufacturing charges.

On April 9, members of the Weakley County Sheriff's Department, The Martin Police Department, The United States Marshal's Service and the Tennessee Board of Probation and Parole conducted in-home compliance checks of all 64 of the registered sex offenders in Weakley County, Tennessee.

An active meth lab was found inside a home at 2106 Parks Well Road near Gleason, Tennessee during one of the checks.

Damion Paul Beam, 42, and Jessica Summer Milligan, 23, were arrested and charged with manufacture of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine and promotion of meth manufacture.

Milligan listed her address as 120 Carter Street in Martin, TN.

Investigators from the sheriff's department quarantined the home at 2106 Parks Well Road.

A home is quarantined after evidence is found that meth was actually made inside the house.

Once quarantined, no one can live in the home until it is certified as fit to live in by a state approved Hazmat contractor which usually costs the homeowner between five thousand  to ten thousand dollars.

The discovery of this meth lab brings the year to date total of labs or lab dump sites found in Weakley County to 23.

During the calendar year of 2012 there was a total of 24 labs found in Weakley County.
