‘It’s definitely a shame,’ neighbor says after second meth lab found in Chesterfield neighborhood

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- Several agencies are investigating a possible meth lab at home in North Chesterfield.

Chesterfield County Police said they were executing a search warrant Sunday at a home in the 9000 block of Lyric Ct. in North Chesterfield. While there, officers said they “observed evidence of the manufacture of methamphetamine.”

“Due to the hazardous nature of a meth lab we evacuated the area and didn’t allow access to the house. We’ve all backed up,” added Luciano. “We’re going to wait for state [police] hazmat team to go in and determine whether it is a meth lab and remove any hazards.”

CBS 6’s Cameron Thompson, who is on the scene, said a hazmat team was seen walking towards at the home around 12:30 p.m.

“There’s a couple of hazards with a meth lab,” said Luciano, explaining the precautions that first responders are taking. “It’s volatile, could be flammable, and also contaminate you by inhalation and touching. There’s a lot of different hazardous materials that make up the process of creating meth that are all hazardous in themselves.”

Back in August 2018, a meth lab was discovered in a home on the same block.

“It's definitely a shame,” said Asean Daniels, who has lived in the neighborhood for eight years. “I wish that we could just get everything straight, situated, and done with so we don't have to have this happen again.”
