At approximately 5:45 p.m., detectives served the search warrant at 11199 S.W. County Road 240, Lake City, FL. Detectives found an active methamphetamine laboratory in the home. Task Force Detectives seized multiple items used in the illegal manufacture of methamphetamine. Detectives were initially led to the home as a result of complaints from area citizens that were concerned about possible illegal activity at the home.

A hazardous material contractor assisted the Task Force in the dismantling and removal of the chemicals and equipment. The hazardous items will be sent to a hazardous materials approved disposal facility.
