APPLETON, Wis. (WFRV) – A day after Appleton Police investigated a home near Pierce Park for a suspected methamphetamine lab, officers are sharing more about what exactly they encountered.
According to APD, officers executed a search warrant in the 1300 Block of W Rogers Avenue. One person was taken into custody at the scene but later released.
While on scene, officers were able to confirm that no active lab was present, however components to manufacture methamphetamine were found in the home.
Police say the search warrant was a result of a lengthy investigation into the address. That investigation is ongoing.
Multiple people not living at the home visited often, so investigators are still working to determine who was directly involved in purchasing the necessary components needed to manufacture methamphetamine.
The Appleton Police Department says they will continue to work with the neighborhood to ensure the safety of our community.
If anyone has information regarding this case, please contact the Appleton Police Department.
