Buffalo Police said Tuesday charges are pending in a case involving the alleged manufacturing of methamphetamine at a South Buffalo residence that brought police and the Buffalo Fire Department's hazardous materials team Monday to a Macamley Avenue home.
During a news conference Tuesday, Lt. Jeffrey Rinaldo said the Buffalo Police's narcotics unit executed a search warrant at the home.
Police were called to the scene about 7 p.m. Monday.
"Upon the officers' arrival, they were able to detect a possible meth lab that was in operation," Rinaldo said.
"The officers did a great job of removing all the occupants from the house, as well as contacting the Buffalo Fire Department hazmat team," Rinaldo said. "When the Buffalo Fire Department responded, it became apparent, based on their training and experience, that this was an actual meth lab."
The home is located south of the 100 block of Macamley, near South Park Avenue and McKinley Parkway, Rinaldo said.
Two blocks were cordoned off by police to allow the hazmat team to go in and remove potentially explosive chemicals used in the manufacturing of the alleged meth, which Rinaldo described as volatile.
Rinaldo said a police narcotics unit "executed a search warrant to search that address and were able to ascertain enough information to press charges that will be pending against the individual who is believed to be the person who was manufacturing methamphetamine at that address."
