      Three men from Van Buren County are behind bars, accused of manufacturing more than 5 grams of methamphetamine.

      The Van Buren County Sheriff's Office executed search warrants early Friday morning at two separate residences in Farmington, Iowa.

      Investigators say they discovered what they call a "one pot" meth lab, numerous precursors and other items used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine.

      Three men were arrested by deputies in connection with the investigation.

      The three men are Jesse Fellows, 22, of Farmington, Iowa, Mitchell Grelk, 29, of Farmington, Iowa, and Levi Nordyke, 23, of Farmington, Iowa.

      All three are being charged with manufacturing more than 5 grams of methamphetamine, a Class "B" Felony.

      The three men are currently in custody with bond set at $100,000.

      The Van Buren County Sheriff's Office says the case is on-going and more arrests are expected.

      Aiding in the investigation were the Iowa State Patrol Tactical Unit and the Southeast Iowa Drug Task Force.
