UPDATE: The Village of Frankfort Police Department has confirmed that a meth lab was found at a home in the village last night, and they’ve provided more information on the investigation.
Yesterday Frankfort police learned from New York State Police in Herkimer that there may be a possible meth lab located at a home in the village. Police say an investigation led them to 318 South Frankfort St., which consists of two apartments, and a meth lab was discovered in the second-floor apartment.
After the meth lab was found, the residence was evacuated and the scene was secured until the State Police CSERT Team arrived. The team then safely secured the hazardous materials in the apartment, and police from both the village and town of Frankfort, along with the Frankfort Fire Department, assisted until state police were finished processing the crime scene.
Police have not yet announced any arrests in this investigation.
FRANKFORT, N.Y. - Yellow police tape surrounded a home in the Village of Frankfort Wednesday evening following the discovering of a possible meth lab.
Police from the village and town of Frankfort, along with State Police were dispatched to a home near 3rd Avenue shortly after 6:30 p.m. Wednesday. Some crews from the Frankfort Fire Department were also on scene. The fire department was called in to help with a "hazmat situation."
