State police in the Monroe County are searching for two people suspected of running a methamphetamine lab inside their home near Effort.
Troopers said a little after 9 p.m. Tuesday domestic relations officers arrived at a home on Park Drive in the Sun Valley community near Effort. They were looking for someone inside the house.
Troopers were immediately called.
A response team that specializes in cleaning up meth labs also came in to help.
Victor Sobrado lives near the home and heard the commotion.
“They were just standing there. I went up there and told them thank you, you know, ‘You guys are doing a great job. I’m happy you’re here.’ Because if it’s what I think it is, I’m glad it’s getting out of the neighborhood,” said Sobrado.
State police said the response team found evidence of a methamphetamine lab inside the home. They spent hours taking it apart.
“Get them out of the neighborhood because we don’t need it in our neighborhood. We’ve got kids. We’ve got kids and the elderly people live here also,” Sobrado added.
State police said they are looking for two people they believe were running the meth lab out of the home.
Troopers would not say who they are looking for because the investigation is ongoing.
