Posted:

FELTON, Del.-Police are investigating a portable meth lab they found at a house in Felton.

Police said it happened on Friday at around 7 p.m.

Authorities were called to a home in the 9000 block of Canterbury Road, after an occupant of the house found soda bottles containing an unknown substance.

Police determined that the bottles were active "One Pot" portable meth labs used to manufacture methamphetamine.

After further investigation troopers found more bottles containing waste associated with the manufacturing of meth along with components and key ingredients in making the drug.

The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, Delaware State Fire Marshal's Office and specialized local Delaware Volunteer Fire Company teams helped with the dismantling of the portable meth labs, cleanup and mitigation process to get rid of the waste.


No evacuations were ordered as it was determined that there was no immediate threat or hazards to people nearby.
