The METRICH Enforcement Unit with assistance from the Mansfield Police Department responded to a tip Wednesday afternoon that resulted in the shut-down of a local meth lab.

Sgt. Joseph Petrycki says they received information that methamphetamines were being cooked at 89 Lexington Avenue in Mansfield, so detectives did a "knock and talk" at the residence just after 7 p.m.

When officers received consent to search the premises, Petrycki says they "located ingredients used to manufacture methamphetamines."

Police then requested a search warrant and called in a hazmat crew to clean out all the ingredients that the suspects were using to cook the meth. Hazmat crews then neutralized contaminated products and turned over evidence to investigators.

The individual believed responsible for this meth lab was not present at the residence during the time of the search, but charges will be filed the the Richland County Prosecutor's Office for Illegal Manufacture of Drugs, Illegal Assembly or Possession of Chemicals for Manufacture of Drugs and Possession of Controlled Substances once the investigation is complete.
