A search revealed another male, David Jones, was in the basement of the home. A K9 found Erica Moore hiding in a small cubby hole.

During the search, officers saw several one pot meth labs in plain view. Searching the home, detectives found 4 active one pot labs,1 used cook bottle, 13 used gas generator bottles as well as a number of ingredients used in the meth making process.
