(KMOV) -- A Jefferson County Sheriff's deputy was injured during a meth lab bust in rural Desoto, MO.

The deputy struggled with one of seven suspects arrested inside the home in the 12000 block of Big Pine Place.

Deputies were originally called to the residence last Thursday to check on a report of strong chemical odors.  Once inside, deputies discovered an active methamphetamine lab.  The Jefferson County Municipal Enforcement Group was called in to dismantle the lab.

The following suspects have been charged with attempting to manufacture methamphetamine.

  • Stephen Williams, 19, Granite City, IL
  • Jacob Wolverton, 23, Potosi, MO
  • Nancy Williams, 41, Desoto, MO
  • Ashley Hicks, 22, Potosi, MO
  • Charles Cole, 22, Dittmer, MO
  • Frank Dunn, 41, Potosi, MO
  • Devon Cole, 29, Desoto, MO

All of the suspects are in the Jefferson County jail on $100,000 bond.

No word on the severity of the deputy's injuries.
