Police find nearly one hundred marijuana plants and ingredients to make meth ... but that's not all.

The Bell County Sheriff's Department made the bust in the Brownies Creek Community.

Not only did officers find the plants and ingredients, they also found a juvenile living in the home.

This home has no electricity and only part time running water.
Police say all too often alleged drug dealers live like this.

"The only thing that person is thinking about is where they are going to get their next fix. Their children and their families... everything else becomes second," said Doug Jordan, with the Bell County Sheriff's Department.

Police arrested Linda Hatfield on several charges including manufacturing meth and cultivating marijuana.
Police are not releasing the name of the juvenile but say he is in custody.

Officers say a tip led them to the home.

"A lot of our information comes from the community and their involvement is crucial to solving crime," said Jordan.

Hatfield is being held in the Bell County Detention Center.
We asked Hatfield for an interview, and she declined.
Officers also found a few stolen items at her home.
