Troopers notified probation and parole officials of Harmon's location and searched the home, locating a meth lab and several ingredients used in the manufacturing of the drug in the garage.
Shelton and Harmon each face charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, trafficking in a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of a meth precursor.

Shelton and Harmon remain lodged at the Carroll County Detention Center in Carrollton.
Two children were in the home at the time of the arrests but were released to family members.
