Once police were allowed inside the residence they quickly found the numerous components which made up the meth lab.“I found a jug of muriatic acid and a gas generator in the back bedroom of the apartment,” said McMinnville Police Officer Ben Cantrell, noting Hollon admitted to the rest of the components once those in the back bedroom were found.The components including things like ammonia nitrate and sodium hydroxide were found in a cooler.
