Allen West, the former guitarist for death metal bands Six Feet Under and Obituary is currently behind bars at the Sumter County Jail in Bushnell, FL, after police discovered the makings of a methamphetamine lab at his Lake Panasoffkee home.

According to the Tri-County Sun Times, West had called 911 to report two male intruders had “forcibly entered his house by kicking in the front door.” The guitarist allegedly ran out of his back door and into nearby woods for safety.

While there’s no indication that the responding Sumter County deputies located any such intruders, what they did discover was a “strong acidic odor from the bedroom.” They found plastic bottles, tubing and other materials consistent with those used to produce methamphetamine.
