An explosion at a suspected drug lab disfigured Heather Raybon's face, but that hasn't stopped the 31-year-old from manufacturing crystal methamphetamine, police allege.
The Florida woman suffered third-degree facial burns and - despite extensive surgery - was left physically scarred by the 2004 blast in what police say was a methamphetamine lab.
Raybon was arrested this week after officers raided a trailer home in an attempt to serve an arrest warrant on fugitive Brian Mauldin.
Police allege they found drug paraphernalia and "noticed a strong chemical smell consistent with a methamphetamine lab and evacuated the residence immediately", Fox10 TV has reported.
"Narcotics detectives wearing protective equipment responded and found materials and ingredients used to produce methamphetamine," according to the report.
"They also located 13g of meth powder and 32g of meth oil. In addition, a small metal pill bottle was found in Raybon's purse. Its contents tested positive for meth.
"Detectives found an active 'one pot' meth lab located in the bedroom and called the fire department due to the threat of fire or explosion."
Raybon and another man were arrested and charged with production of methamphetamine, trafficking methamphetamine, possession of felony drug equipment and possession of listed chemicals to manufacture methamphetamine.
Police are still looking for Mauldin, 28.
"Raybon has multiple past arrests involving methamphetamine-related charges," Milton Police Sgt Scott Haines said.
