Well, if you have read about the supposed meth lab that the police busted the other night about a block from the Va. Square Metro, you won't learn anything more about it here.
The basics of it are this, according to the Arlington County Police Department press release:
On Monday night, police were called to a dispute at a residence. Inside they found equipment "consistent" with the manufacture of the drug, methamphetamine. The fire department's hazmat team, the ACPD bomb squad and other emergency responders were called to the scene. Three floors of the building were evacuated while the police investigated, the release says.
Brewing meth can be explosive if done incorrectly.
Subsequent to the search warrant, Leonard Fischer, 44, and William Hudgens, 31, of Arlington were arrested and charged with Attempted Manufacturing of Methamphetamine, the release says.
According to ArlNow, the area around 801 N. Monroe St. was cordoned off and the people were allowed back into their apartments in the wee hours of the morning.
Here's the Patch coverage on the arrests of the men.
Alas, classes at Montgomery College where I teach start next week, and I must get chugging on coursework, and there are meetings galore this week. So, I just thought I'd link to other coverage out there already on the lab.
With the semester in full swing, we have to be more choosy about our coverage is all.
When I hear more or get info on progress, I'll let you know. --Steve Thurston
