Law enforcement arrested five people on meth charges on Monday.

Waynesboro Police Department Sgt. Brian Edwards said the suspects were using a home at 304 Essex Avenue as a meth lab.

The SWAT team and WASSP (Waynesboro, Augusta, Staunton and State Police) regional task force found ingredients and equipment for making the drug.

Edwards said the task force found meth oil, which is a raw form of the drug.

Robin Lee Brown recently moved to the area said he didn't expect this.

"I'm kinda shocked honestly like I said I thought it was a pretty quiet neighborhood. I didn't realize there was this kinda thing going on here," said Brown.

According to Brown, people who are involved in meth labs could bring other types of crimes to the neighborhood.

It could cost up to $2,500 to the City of Waynesboro to dismantle the lab and to get rid of the chemicals. Taxpayers in Waynesboro would be responsible for paying for it.
