Jones County Sheriff's Deputies busted a meth lab they say was run by a husband and wife team.

According to Captain Justin Eimer with the Jones County Sheriff's Office, investigators found about a half ounce of meth and a non-active meth lab on Country View Lane in Jones County, near the Lenoir County line.  They made the discovery around 1:30 p.m. Thursday.

They arrested Michael Hogan and Kimberly Stewart after finding the meth and lab.  Deputies say they were originally called to the house for a child support delinquency issue, and that's when they found the illegal items.  They say no children were at the house.
