Police bust meth lab near several city schools

(WMC-TV) - Police spent the afternoon raiding a meth lab near several Memphis schools.

A football team was supposed to practice in Treadwell Park this afternoon, but practice was canceled after an active meth lab was busted at that house right across the street.

It happened around two o'clock Tuesday afternoon at 974 Homer. Investigators arrived just as students from the nearby Treadwell schools dismissed for the day.

So far, four people are in custody in connection to the meth lab and neighbors are happy to see teams from the Tennessee Meth Task Force and Memphis Police Department's meth unit cleaning things up.

This is the latest in a series of meth lab busts in this general vicinity. It's an area police say meth investigators are closely watching.
