PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) -  Phenix City police say they stumbled across a meth lab inside a local mobile home while investigating another crime.

Officials say officers went to a trailer on Gauntt Road off Opelika Road around 3 PM Thursday as part of an ongoing theft investigation.

They tell WTVM not only did they find stolen goods, including a truck, but they also discovered the remnants of a mobile shake and bake meth lab inside the trailer and ingredients for the lab in the trash outside.

One man was arrested and is facing multiple charges, according to investigators who are not yet releasing his identity. They say they recovered thousands of dollars worth of stolen items from the property.

A clean up crew from Birmingham was called in to take care of the hazardous materials from the meth lab.
