The Madison County Sheriff's Office said investigators found two large active one-step meth labs in a home across from a nursing home in Berea.

Narcotics investigators said they received a complaint about a possible meth lab at 598 Richmond Road.

Upon arriving, detectives said they were able to gain entrance into an apartment and detected a strong odor of ammonia.

Detectives said the owner gave them permission to search the apartment. 

Investigators said they found two large active one-step meth labs.

Detectives said they found enough chemicals to produce approximately a half-pound of meth with a street value of $10,000.

The Madison County Sheriff's Narcotics Unit started dismantling the lab.

The Berea Nursing Home across the street did not have to be evacuated.

Investigators said Mark Hawley, 36, of Berea, was charged with Manufacturing Meth 2nd Offense.

Hawley was lodged in the Madison County Detention Center.
