OCEAN CITY, Md.- Ocean City police say they have arrested a man after a meth lab was located in his room at a 59th Street, bayfront hotel.

Police said that at around 1 p.m. Sunday, March 13, officers and fire personnel responded to the Coconut Malorie Hotel, located at 200 59th St., for a report of an individual who was possibly in possession of materials used to manufacture methamphetamine. Upon arrival, officers went to a room in the hotel and spoke with the person in question, identified by police as 28-year-old Andrew S. Windsor.

Police said that due to the possible imminent danger of the chemicals used to manufacture methamphetamine, the Ocean City Fire Department evacuated two floors of the hotel.

While evacuating the building, officers said they located a trash bag filled with liquid chemical substances and other various items used to manufacture methamphetamine in a stairwell. Police said fumes were coming from the bag due to a chemical reaction. The trash bag was quickly made safe by Ocean City Fire Marshal’s Office personnel, according to police. 

Detectives of the Ocean City Police Criminal Investigation Division Narcotics Unit responded and upon investigation, obtained a search warrant for the room. Police said a search was conducted by Maryland State Police, the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Enforcement Team and the Ocean City Fire Marshal’s Office, which revealed equipment and component mixtures commonly used in the manufacturing stages of methamphetamine.

Windsor has been charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of products used to manufacture methamphetamine and reckless endangerment. He was seen by a Maryland District Court Commissioner and transferred to the Worcester County Jail where he is  being held without bond. Detectives also determined that Windsor is wanted on an extraditable warrant out of the State of Florida for violation of probation, police said.
