HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- Investigators with the Harrisonburg Police Department confirm that a suspect has been arrested after they investigated a domestic dispute which led to the discovery of a mobile meth lab.
Police said they originally received a call about a domestic dispute in the parking lot of the Rockingham Cooperative and Ace Hardware store, but when they arrived, they discovered something much bigger.
City spokeswoman Mary Hope Vass said the victim in the dispute called police.
She said witnesses told them they saw a man run off after a domestic dispute with a red bag.
When police investigated the bag, they discovered a mobile meth lab, prompting High Street to close and hazmat crews to move in.
"Certainly when you have something like this it can pose a serious hazard, so we have members of the fire department. Drug Task Force has responded other officers with the police department have all come out to work together and make sure the public is safe," said Vass.
The RUSH Drug Task Force is investigating the case.
One person was taken into custody, but the name has not been released.
