NEW ALBANY, Ind. (WHAS11) -- Four people were arrested overnight after police busted a meth lab in New Albany.
It happened early Wednesday morning in the 2000 block of East Market Street.
Emily Striegel, 24, Angel Hall, 28, Kayla Lynch,19, and Michael Logsdon, 33, have all been arrested and placed in the Floyd County Jail.
“We’re always happy when we can make the community safe and getting drugs off the street,” said Maj. Keith Whitlow with the New Albany Police Department. “In this case, maybe the four people were safer and will turn their life around.”
New Albany police are working with the Indiana State Police in the investigation. Officers had to wear gas masks while entering the lab that contained the toxic chemicals used for making meth. Officials say the ingredients used for making the drug can become explosive.
“I’ve heard of houses blowing up,” said one man who lives next to the meth lab. “That’s what got me shaken up.”
That neighbor says he has seen people going in and out of the garage in the past. But, he did not suspect meth was being made in the neighborhood he has lived in for the past 20 years.
“It’s not a bad neighborhood,” he says. “But, you can have your bad eggs.”
