Police Investigate Possible Watertown Meth LabPosted: Updated:
Law enforcement officials were at the scene of a possible meth lab at a Watertown apartment building Thursday morning.
The building is at 546 Cooper Street.
Officials at the scene -- including members of the Metro-Jefferson Drug Task Force -- say the investigation is continuing.
City police were originally called there around 11:44 p.m. Wednesday.
Police say patrols found possible evidence of meth-making activity and called the drug task force to investigate.
Task Force members said they found meth-making materials at the scene.
City police say they were called to Cooper Street on a tip from a neighbor.
And people who live there say the neighborhood is going downhill.
"Two weekends ago, Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday — ambulances, cops, excuse me, policemen, fire trucks, everybody was out there,” said Debbie Streeter, who has lived on Cooper Street for nine years.
"We have kids, two 11 year olds, twins,” Dawn Castellan said. She’s lived there 10 years. “I don't let them walk, even though they have cell phones, I do not let them walk."
"If the TV gets boring,” four-year resident Tony Bond said, “I can turn my chair and I can look out the picture window and see what's new with the house across the street."
Police say there have been no arrests as of Thursday evening.
