Storm Lake Police executed a search warrant at a mobile home Thursday night that led them to a partial methamphetamine drug lab - a first for law enforcement in the city.
The search at 503A West 8th Street was part of an ongoing drug investigation.
Police located the partial meth lab in the garage area of the mobile home and requested the Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement Lab Team to respond to the scene.
At approximately 11:30 p.m., the lab team arrived and processed the garage area, neutralized the chemicals that were located and collected evidence of the lab. In addition to the materials seized, police also confiscated a small amount of marijuana and other drug paraphernalia. The team stayed on the scene until 1:30 a.m. Friday.
