FAIRBORN, Ohio (WDTN)– The Greene County drug task force spent hours busting one meth lab, and waiting on a search warrant that would lead them to another.
Officials showed up in the 1000 block of Lexington Avenue around 12:30 Wednesday afternoon.
Ashley Fields, a woman who lives nearby, saw men in Hazmat suits outside the apartment complex.
“It does make me nervous, because I have a five month old son, and if it was a meth lab, and that was to blow up, you know — who knows what could happen.”
Once officials pulled all of the combustible materials out of the apartment complex, they obtained a search warrant for the house at 1036 Lexington Avenue.
Police arrested John Gallagher, the owner of the home– according to the search warrant, for a probation violation.
Several dogs were inside the home. A woman came and took some of them away in her car.
Crews left the scene around 7 p.m.
More arrests could come later.
