(WMC-TV) - Police say a man roasting a raccoon in a Midtown apartment building's rear parking lot Monday, led them to a meth lab that landed his brother in jail.

Officers found the man behind 1985 Madison and say that in addition to the cooking raccoon, he also had several large knives. Investigators called in the department's meth task force to help after they also discovered buckets of an unknown material.

Police ended up arresting the man's brother, 26-year-old Adam Eubank, after entering the men's apartment, according to court records. Police say Eubank had purchased cold medicine used to manufacture methamphetamine nearly three dozen times in the past year.

Eubank's charged with promoting the manufacture of meth. He's being held on $75,000 bond.
