A 45-year-old Victoria man was arrested Tuesday by deputies after a large meth lab was discovered at his home, according to arrest reports.
During a search of the home in the 3700 block of Burroughsville Road, deputies found large amounts of non-approved gas cans and containers that held caustic materials, as well as tubing and glass and metal wear typically assembled or adapted for use in the manufacturing of meth. Deputies also found waste materials from a meth cook that tested positive for methamphetamine and ephedrine.
The man was arrested on suspicion of first degree felony manufacturing and delivering of a controlled substance, second degree felony possession of chemical with intent to manufacture a controlled substance and third degree felony possession or transport of anhydrous ammonia in an unapproved container.
