The E Division Clandestine Lab team and the Coquitlam RCMP drug section are investigating, after neighbors reported a strange smell coming from a Coquitlam home this morning.
Staff Sgt. Rob Lemon says authorities discovered a suspected clandestine drug lab in the 800 block of Westwood Street around 9am.
“As they were doing this, they observed a male exiting from the residence, that was curious to them, the individual was detained and subsequently arrested, it was an adult male, he is being held pending further investigation.”
Surrounding homes were temporarily evacuated as a Hazmat team searched the home, but have since returned.
