Hancock County narcotics officials discovered an operating "meth lab" last week, after FEMA inspectors discovered suspicious items during a routine check up, Narcotics Director Matt Karl said Tuesday.
According to Karl, his office was called Wednesday by FEMA inspectors who said they saw materials inside a FEMA trailer at 6142 Apache St. in Jordan River Shores.
Karl met inspectors at the residence later that afternoon, and when inspectors opened the door to the trailer, Karl said he noticed bags of ammonia nitrate and canned fuel in plain sight.
Nobody was home at the time and Karl was able to gain a search warrant for the trailer. The next day, agents searched the trailer and discovered a large amount of precursor materials, which are used to manufacture meth.
"It was a working meth lab," Karl said.
Karl said the materials were taken as evidence and two suspects have been identified, he said. The sheriff's department is seeking those subjects to interview, he said.The trailer was taken away by FEMA, he said.
