WASHINGTON | Washington police have identified three men suspected of creating a drug lab in a freshmen dormitory at Georgetown University in Washington.

Police said Sunday that Charles Smith and John Romano, both Georgetown University students, and John Perrone, a guest, were charged with manufacturing a controlled substance. The three were expected to be arraigned Monday morning. The ages and addresses of the three were not released.

Police say emergency crews responded to the dorm Saturday morning after a strange odor was reported. About 400 students were evacuated from Harbin Hall. Seven people were exposed to noxious chemicals, including three students.

Georgetown spokeswoman Julie Green Bataille said no one was injured.
