MASSAC COUNTY, IL (KFVS) -

A Massac County, Illinois man is facing a number of charges after deputies say they found a meth lab in his home Saturday night.

Michael Taylor, 56, of Unionville Road was charged with aggravated unlawful participation in methamphetamine production within 1000 feet of a church, possession of methamphetamine precursors, possession of firearms by a convicted felon and possession of firearm ammunition by a convicted felon.

According to Sheriff Ted Holder, complaints had been coming in about meth activity in the area around the 8000 block of Unionville Rd for several weeks.

After getting a search warrant, around 8:30 p.m. Saturday, deputies went to the home and found Taylor alone there.

Holder says an active meth lab, meth precursors, two rifles and ammunition in Taylors bedroom was found after a search. The sheriff says Taylor is also a convicted felon.

The lab cleanup was done by the Illinois State Police Meth Response Team. Taylor was being held without bond at the Massac County Detention Center.
