Police Bust Suspected Meth Lab in Smyrna

Updated:

SMYRNA, Del.- Smyrna police say that two men are facing charges after an investigation led to the discovery of a suspected methamphetamine lab.

On Monday, Sept. 23, the Smyrna Police Department, the Kent County Drug Unit, Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, Governor's Task Force, Delaware State Police Special Operations Response Team and the Little Creek Fire Department executed a search warrant at a home located at 611 Hawkeye Branch Road in Smyrna.

According to police, items to make methamphetamine were found inside of the home. Bottles with meth product remains, sulfuric acid, lithium wrappers, plastic tubes and Coleman fuel were located during the search, police said.

Officers said that 38-year-old George Taylor was arrested after .4 grams of finished meth was found in his bedroom. He was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, conspiracy II and possession of drug paraphernalia. His bail is pending at this time.

Richard Taylor, 30, who also lives at the home, had been arrested by Smyrna police the previous day during a traffic stop. Police said they stopped him because the Dover Police Department had a warrant out for his arrest in connection with a hit-and-run accident. Smyrna police said that during the stop, he was found in possession of Coleman fuel, lithium batteries and boxes of pseudoephedrine during a traffic stop. According to police, he was charged with manufacturing an illegal substance and endangering the welfare of a child because he had a 16-year-old in the car with him. He is being held at the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center.
