HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Police, Fire and HAZMAT crews searched two Henrico homes Wednesday. Police have not said what exactly led them to the homes, but crews in HAZMAT suits were seen in the area, leading some neighbors to believe it was a drug-related investigation.

"It doesn't matter where you live," Lawrence Satldon, who lives near one of the homes -- along the 3100 block of Danville Street -- said. "When they're cooking that stuff if they make one wrong move it could blow."

That stuff, he referred to, is the drug methamphetamine -- or meth.

The second home, on Huntsman Road in Sandston, is located about five miles away from Danville Street.
Police have not yet said whether the investigations were related.
