Jones County Sheriffs deputies say they raided a meth lab on Richlands Road late Thursday afternoon.

Officers tell NewsChannel 12 they first went to the scene to arrest 27-year-old Jeffrey Wiggins on a failure to appear notice.  They say they found evidence of a meth lab and obtained an arrest warrant on related charges.  Deputies and State Bureau of Investigation agents were taking evidence from the scene Thursday evening.

Sheriff Danny Heath says it is the fourth meth lab found in Jones County this year.
