Likely the alleged pair of meth chemists would’ve gone undetected awhile longer if a 6-six year old boy hadn’t found two backpacks hidden in some shrubbery at 128 Andrews Ford Road. The backpacks allegedly contained meth precursor chemicals including sulfuric acid that burned the boy’s upper body and face. Transported to the hospital and treated, the youngster is said to be on the way to recovery.
