BRIDGEVILLE, Del. - Delaware State Police have arrested a Bridgeville man after carrying out a search warrant for a suspected methamphetamine lab.

According to police, troopers responded to 4727 Rabbit Run Road around 6:15 a.m. on Nov. 12 to conduct a search warrant as part of an on-going investigation.

Police arrested 53-year-old Alton J. Rose Jr. when they arrived at the residence.

Police say detectives found equipment and component mixtures of the manufacturing stages of meth, along with key ingredients in making the drug.

Detectives also found 21 firearms and various ammunition, according to police.

Rose is charged with two counts of Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony, Operation of a Clandestine Lab, Possession with Intent to Deliver Meth, Resisting Arrest and four counts of Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

He was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution on $91,800 cash bond.
