DEKALB COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

Agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration have dismantled what they're calling a major drug house in DeKalb County.

They raided the small duplex on Rockbridge Road Wednesday afternoon, spending several hours collecting what appeared to be chemicals and other evidence.

Rachael Tharpe and Patrick Cossette were booked at the DeKalb County Jail for possession of a substance with intent to manufacture a controlled substance.

The lab being manufactured was a suspected Methylendioxymethamphetamine or Ecstasy Lab.

This investigation continues and there is the potential for additional arrests.
