BERWICK -- A drug lab was shut down with the help of the suspect's family in Columbia County.

Berwick police said Tyler Bitler's family called officers, accusing him of making methamphetamine in a home on Fairview Avenue Wednesday.

Investigators were called in to take apart the suspected homemade drug lab, the eleventh found in the area since late last year.

Officers removed a propane torch, batteries and other items they believe Bitler used to make the powerful stimulant.
