Bristol, Va. police arrest two in meth lab bust

By Claire Galofaro

The Bristol Virginia Police Department busted a meth lab this morning at an apartment house right across the street from the police station.

A 54-year-old man and his 53-year-old girlfriend were arrested in their apartment on the 300 block of Moore Street and charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, conspiracy to manufacture meth and being in possession of two or more precursors.

According to police, the couple was making meth in a Powerade bottle in their apartment, one of eight in the apartment house. The chemical smell was overwhelming through the building, said Detective J. Michael Danser  

The lab is one of dozens across the region found in recent months and police, worried that the drug will again take hold in their communities, ask anyone with information on a suspected meth lab to contact their local department.

Danser said there could be a second Bristol, Va., lab busted by the end of the day.
