A tip about a stolen truck Monday led investigators to the discovery of a methamphetamine lab in a Rocky Ford Road home.

The investigation continues regarding the 1999 Ford Ranger, reported stolen to the Statesboro Police Department, Bulloch County Sheriff Lynn Anderson said in a news release issued Tuesday.

However, investigators with the Statesboro-Bulloch Crime Suppression Team arrested Richard Lanier, 42, and Staci Street Anderson, 45, both of Rocky Ford Road in Garfield, after finding "an active methamphetamine lab" inside the home, Lynn Anderson said.

Acting on a tip that a stolen vehicle was located at a residence in the 6000 block of Rocky Ford Road, team members arrived and found the stolen pickup truck, the sheriff said.

Lanier and Staci Anderson were arrested and transported to the Bulloch County Jail, charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and possession of methamphetamine. Additional charges regarding the truck may be pending.

The Crime Suppression Team is a joint effort of the Bulloch County Sheriff's Office and Statesboro Police Department.
