A buy-to-let landlord was shocked after discovering what appeared to be a 'deconstructed meth lab' in his house in Bulwell, Nottinghamshire, left behind by a former tenant. The house, located less than five miles from Nottingham city centre, has now been cordoned off by police.
A spokesman for the police said a landlord reported that a previous tenant had left behind a number of bottled chemicals, including an unknown liquid, as part of the meth lab, which is used to make methamphetamine, an addictive drug that can be sold as crystals, pills or powder.
Police have launched an investigation, but no arrests have yet been made. Chief Constable for Nottinghamshire Police, Craig Guildford, said it is “not very often” his officers come across meth labs. He told Nottinghamshire Live: “I think this is the first one we have found this year. We come across a lot of cannabis growers but in terms of meth labs that is something relatively rare.”
