The RCMPâ€™s clandestine lab specialists were called to a home in Langley after a Saturday fire revealed a suspected drug lab.
Early on Jan. 10, the Township Fire Department was called to a structure fire in the 22900 block of 40th Avenue and the Langley RCMP was called to assist.
There are at least two residences on the property and the owners reside in the house at the back of the property, said Langley RCMP spokeperson Cpl. Holly Marks. The front house had recently been rented and tenants were in the process of moving in.
â€œThe fire was deemed suspicious and there was a concern there may be a clandestine lab on the third floor of the home,â€ she said.
For health reasons, it was not safe for anyone to enter the residence immediately and the Clandestine Lab specialists were asked to attend.
Clandestine Drug investigators advised they had located items within the residence indicating a production lab of synthetic drugs. Later that day a hazardous goods removal company attended to deal with the remnants.
â€œNo charges will be laid as police are unable to identify the persons managing the lab operation,â€ Marks said.
