CKNW is reporting that the Vancouver Police have busted a Meth lab at the corner of West 7th and Yew in Kits. What’s happening to our hood?
While emergency crews continue to dismantle a meth lab found in Kitsilano Thursday morning, Vancouver Police are reporting they’re finding more drug dens in unexpected places.
Inspector Dean Robinson, who heads up the Drug Squad, says the latest discovery was in an apartment building near the corner of 7th and Yew, "Its always alarming if there’s a lab like a meth lab or a clandestine lab because they are volatile. Right now, they are on the rise, not in an epidemic capacity, but we have found more this year than we found last year and the year before that."
Firefighters were initially investigating reports of white smoke, but became suspicious when they were refused entry to the suite. A man and woman are facing charges.
