RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - Authorities evacuated tenants from a building in Rutland, Vermont, after police say they discovered a methamphetamine lab.

The Rutland Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1KacqP6) firefighters and police investigated an apartment building Wednesday evening in Rutland and closed off a nearby intersection for nearly eight hours. Authorities searched the unit for any potential hazards.

The scene was cleared early Thursday morning and police say there are no active health risks to the public.

Detectives and a federal agent were looking into a potential drug investigation at the residence and found that a 19-year-old man had materials used to manufacture methamphetamine.

He was taken into custody and has been charged with manufacturing of methamphetamine. He was released and is slated to appear in Rutland criminal court on August 31.
