Deputies found what they called a large rock of crystal meth at Sienna Pointe nursing home in Pleasant Grove.
The home, a place with 43 beds that's normally known as quite and calm, is where deputies said a cleaning crew found a lump of meth worth at least $3,000.
Sheriff Fred Thompson said the discovery is shocking.
"You know, we've never had any drug problems there," Thompson said.
The meth was found in a resident’s room, along with a pipe.
Deputies said it's unclear if the nursing home resident is a user or a dealer, but they hope to have the case closed by the end of the week.
Deputies said the resident caught with the meth came into Belmont from another county, and the department thinks it knows how the resident got the drug.
