Police Find, Raid Another Meth Lab

Another local area suspected methamphetamine lab was raided and shut down today, Easton Police report.

Two adults were detained after police executed a search warrant at 1415 Pine St. at about 2:12 p.m. today. The Easton Police Vice/Narcotics Unit and Pennsylvania State Police SERT and Clandestine Laboratory Team were involved in the operation, authorities said.

Arrested was Michael Williams, 52, who lived at the raided address and will face charges of manufacturing methampthetamine and possibly other related offenses, police said.

The other person who was initially detained was released without charge, police said.

Police say methamphetamine cooking materials were located in the residence, and that their presence indicates the illegal drug was being produced there.

The potentially hazardous materials were removed safely from the dwelling by the PSP Clandestine Lab Team and will be held as evidence, police said.

The investigation and associated raid today is related to the one that happened last week, on Jan. 11 at 120 North 15th St., authorities confirmed.

Updated at 4:52 p.m. to include mention of the release of the other person that was initially detained.
