Jurors were told that book is often found in home meth labs. Available on the Internet, it provides instructions for making meth and other drugs, the officers said.
Meadows told the jury the home was cluttered with junk outside and inside. He described it as "pretty dirty" and "nasty."
Deitz also said the amount of meth-making materials carried out of the home was large, including multiple bottles of Heet, peroxide and iodine. Those materials, which took hours to remove, were placed on a plastic sheet in the yard and photographed.
Jurors saw that picture, which was one of more than 60 taken by officers and displayed in the courtroom.
Deitz testified such meth labs are usually the effort of multiple persons, one "chief cook" who may supply a small amount of the drug in exchange for needed ingredients. He said that can explain the heavy traffic in and out of a meth lab home.
Police had been watching D'Arco's home for months, beginning in 2007, after receiving four anonymous tips about activity there. They also tracked his purchases of ingredients at local stores.
Drennan testified that he observed the house more than 30 times before authorities believed they had enough evidence to make arrests and search for a lab.
Ed Rebrook, defense attorney for D'Arco, told jurors in his opening statement, "There are two sides to every coin. Just as there are two sides to this case.
"If the facts were as the prosecutor says, we would not be having a trial," Rebrook said. "He would have pleaded guilty."
Dennis Bailey, who is representing Lovejoy, said she cannot be tied to the meth lab at all.
"The heart of the matter here is that the only evidence the state has to put forward is Shawnette Lovejoy was with the wrong people at the wrong time," Bailey said.
"Her fingerprints were not on anything," he said. "Quite simply, she's not guilty. It's very probable that she didn't even know it was in the secret room. Nobody could have known."
The defense is expected to present its case beginning Wednesday.
