Deputies looking for man who made meth in his grandmother's basement

KINGSPORT, Tenn. - Sullivan County Sheriff's deputies are looking for a Kingsport man after they discovered he was making meth in a home on Potato Hill Road.

We're told Richard Little, 28, had a meth lab in the basement of his grandmother's house. Little was not there when deputies searched the home.

Sheriff's Office spokesperson Leslie Earhart said they found three one-pot meth cook bottles, several gas generator bottles and other items used to make meth.

Earhart told us Little's grandmother didn't know this was happening.

"That's really unfortunate in this situation because she truly is an innocent victim and had no idea he was doing this," she said.

It will cost this woman more than $10,000 to test and clean the home, according Earhart.

The home has been quarantined until that's done, which means the woman isnot allowed back in.

Sheriff's deputies are still looking for Little. They ask that you call the Sheriff's Office at (423) 279-7500 if you have any information on  where he is.
