Cannon County Sheriff's Department arrested six individuals following recent raids on two meth houses on Hollow Springs Road.

In the first raid, products used to make methamphetamine were discovered following the execution of a search warrant. In the second, 13 one-pot meth labs were discovered, said sheriff’s Investigator Anthony Young.
