The same day, investigators also learned the couple bought Coleman camping fuel from Walmart, Last night, investigators tracked them down to Slough Loop Road. They watched them, walked up, and could see some items to make meth in plain view in a Chevy Trail Blazer.

"Chris basically, pretty much, said there's a meth lab in the truck and I'll show you where it's at and he took us over," said Investigator Jason Williams with the Decatur County Sheriff's Office. "It's actually what's considered a shake and bake meth lab."

Amanda and Chris Smith are charged with manufacturing meth, unlawful possession of pseudoephedrine, and possession of methamphetamine .
