A motel room at the Knights Inn on South Church Street was allegedly being used to cook meth last week, according to Murfreesboro Police. Officers made the discovery after locating an unattended backpack found under a stairwell at the facility.
In room 132 police observed evidence that the occupants were using the room to cook meth. A neighboring room had to be evacuated and the Tennessee Meth Task Force responded to properly clear the room.
A juvenile was exposed to meth in the hotel room and that child was evidently 5-years of age. Jeffery St. John, 24, of Mt Juliet was arrested.
