The Pickaway County Sheriff's Office said it conducted one of the largest meth lab busts ever in Central Ohio.

Ronald Hedges was in court Thursday in Circleville, after authorities uncovered a huge meth lab behind his house Wednesday night.
Pickaway County Sheriff Robert Radcliff says the lab included equipment used to make the drug... plus, explosives.. and even construction-level igniting compounds, called "blast caps".

Deputies from several counties and a bomb squad moved into the campers behind Hedges's house Wednesday night.
