Tyler Police Department investigates possible manufacture of a controlled substance

Three arrested in Tyler in bust of possible meth lab

TYLER (TYLER POLICE DEPARTMENT) -- On June 6th, 2013 at approximately 8PM Tyler Police Officers observed two subjects exiting the woods in the 1000 block of Forest.

These subjects entered a parked vehicle with a third subject. Officers contacted these subjects and found one of them to be in possession of methamphetamine. A subsequent search of the vehicle revealed numerous items of drug paraphernalia as well as numerous bottles of chemicals and laboratory equipment. Several of the bottles contained liquids of unknown origin. The Tyler Fire Department Hazmat unit responded to the scene. It was determined that the chemicals were not explosive and were separated to avoid possible chemical reactions. The three subjects were brought to the Tyler Police Department where they were questioned by Detectives.

Two of the subjects were released. The other subject was booked into the Smith County Jail for Possession of a Controlled Substance (Penalty Group 1). The names of the subjects and the specifics of the case are not being released at this time due to an ongoing investigation.
