A routine traffic stop turned into the discovery of several meth labs, including active meth labs under a family's home, Tuesday in Williamson County.
The family was left in shock after Sophia Woods, 30, was arrested - along with Timothy Williams - in connection to the discoveries.
Woods' brother, David Gable, said police arrested Woods, who has been in and out of jail and battled an addiction with meth.
"She went from a mother, married, a married mother of three, with a home, loving home, to a loss of all her children to now incarcerated," Gable said.
Fairview police said an officer made a routine traffic stop about 4 a.m. and found a rolling meth lab, which resulted in authorities later finding other meth labs hidden at Gable's parents' home on Grammer Drive in northwest Fairview.
Gable said, unfortunately, his sister's addiction has put her back behind bars.
"Sadly, she made a poor decision and brought it into this household, which is a good family household," he said.
Investigators found several active meth labs in a crawl space beneath the home, situated under the family's bathroom.
"We had no knowledge of this, and it was a surprise to us this morning," Gable said. "They had four meth labs going, and we had no knowledge of it."
It's a painful reality of meth, which Gable said he hopes others never have to face.
"Anybody that's going down that road with meth, it will ruin their life," he said. "It's taken a beautiful girl and it's turned her into something horrible."
