Carbondale’s Police Department is reporting a suspected methamphetamine lab in the center of town. Police chief Gene Schilling said this afternoon that officers visited a house yesterday about a block from Main Street, and found what they say appeared to be a meth lab.
Officers secured the scene and brought in the Two Rivers Drug Enforcement Team, or TRIDENT, for assistance. Materials were confiscated and sent to a lab to see if they were used to make meth. The building has been vacated and sealed up by the Carbondale and Rural Fire Protection District, with help from the Town of Carbondale Building Department.
