An early morning raid occurred in Augusta County when authorities discovered a meth lab in a trailer park.

Shortly after eight Wednesday morning, Augusta County authorities arrested 47-year-old Eugene Stroop on charges of manufacturing meth in his home.
The discovery was made by undercover agents part of the WASSP Task Force.

The task force is made up of agents from Waynesboro, Staunton, Augusta County, State Police and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
Upon discovering the lab in his bedroom, Stroop was arrested.

While authorities say the lab was inactive for several days, it was still a dangerous situation.

Neighbors in the Jollet Springs Trailer Park say they were surprised by the early morning raid.

One resident, Amber Willis, says, "This morning, the police and ambulance and whatever else, came in, down the hill and from what we understand they came in and found things up in the dumpster and in the house."

This isn't the first time Stroop has been in trouble for a meth lab. The WASSP agents were at his home for the first time on May 29 when they discovered a first meth lab.
