Fort Lauderdale police investigating a disturbance on Sunday evening discovered a miniature methamphetamine lab in a motel room.
Officers responded to the Relax Inn at 1851 S. Federal Hwy. in Fort Lauderdale after being notified that a woman and two men were having an argument.
The motel’s management asked the individuals to leave the premises. The trio agreed and management asked the officers to escort them to their rooms to gather their things. As the officers were escorting the individuals, the woman told them that one of the men was cooking meth in his room.
The officers discovered what looked like a small meth lab in the room and, as a precautionary measure, the other residents of the motel were evacuated. Detectives arrived on the scene and the three individuals were detained for questioning.
Drug Enforcement Agency clandestine lab team members arrived on the scene to secure the toxic chemicals. Charges are pending the result of the investigation.
