Suspected meth lab found at Boardman home

Posted: Updated:

BOARDMAN, Ohio - Hazmat crews dispose of chemicals from a Glenwood Avenue home, believed to be consistent with a methamphetamine lab.

But it was Saturday when neighbors first noticed unusual activity at the Glenwood Avenue home.

"They moved in Saturday morning at five in the morning, and 4:30 in the afternoon they caught the house on fire," said Neighbor Dwight McMurray.

When McMurray called 9-1-1, he says the man at the home took off.

"He said he was going to move his car next door and I said, that was a good idea to get out of the way of the fire department and he just kept driving down the street," said McMurray. "I had no idea at the time what was going on, but obviously we do now."

Fire officials say the cause of Saturday's fire is still unclear, but it was that evening they received information of a possible meth lab at the home and notified police.

However, the evidence was destroyed in the fire.

Police returned to the home Wednesday with another search warrant.

"This situation here seemed to be what they call a one bottle cook which is a less serious than a full blown meth lab would be," said Boardman Assistant Fire Chief Don Kloes.

Police say they know who the suspect is but do not know his location at this time.

No charges have been pressed.
