According to Cherokee County Sheriff Jeff Shaver, on April 22, 2011, agents with the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office Narcotics Unit along with investigators and deputies from the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office and Deputy State Fire Marshal Ray Cumby executed a search warrant at the residence of Michael Paul Roberts in the Spring Garden community. CNU Agents located and seized an active methamphetamine lab. While conducting a thorough search of the residence, Deputy Cumby located what appeared to be an explosive device and contacted the Alabama Bureau of Investigations Bomb Squad, who responded to the scene.
