Search found meth material
JUNEAU - The Southeast Alaska Narcotics Enforcement Team searched a Mendenhall Valley home Friday and found evidence of suspected manufacturing of methamphetamine, an addictive stimulant also known as meth or speed, according to a spokesman.
Sgt. Ray Culbreth said the team found a case of over-the-counter tablets sometimes used to manufacture the illegal drug, but it found no evidence of glass beakers or other equipment to indicate a meth lab.
Culbreth said police also seized "gram quantities" of hashish, marijuana and a powder believed to be cocaine.
Police found four people in the home when they served the search warrant, and Culbreth said eight others showed up during the search. He said all 12 are under investigation, as are other people who were not in the house. Although police expect to make some arrests, Culbreth said they have not arrested anyone yet. He declined to give more specific information on the location of the valley home or the names of those contacted.
