PLYMOUTH — Dozens of people were forced out of their homes Tuesday afternoon in Luzerne County when investigators discovered a suspected drug lab inside a big apartment building.

That building is home to around two dozen people on Main Street in Plymouth.

Investigators from the state attorney general’s office raided the place Tuesday afternoon.

One man and two women were taken in to custody. Their names have not been released.

Authorities on the scene said the apartment housed an extensive methamphetamine lab.

Officials believe the three people in custody were making and selling meth.

Authorities said the building had been condemned a few years ago and code enforcement officers plan to inspect the place.

Residents of the building are being housed at the Plymouth fire department and being helped by the Red Cross.
