BREAKING: RCMP dismantle clandestine lab in South Langley

First responders are on scene

There is a “heavy police presence” in South Langley Thursday morning as crews work to dismantle a clandestine lab.

Mounties ask the public to avoid the area of 24600-block of 21B Ave. while Langley RCMP and Clandestine Lab Enforcement and Response Team dismantle the lab.

More than a dozen vehicles were pulled up on the roadside near the property, including a large police van, two ambulances, a few marked RCMP vehicles and numerous unmarked vehicles.

According to BC Assessment, the site is a 5.1 acre property with a mobile home and a shed. The site was assessed at $1.5 million in value last year.
