YARMOUTH, Mass. (AP) - A man allegedly running a methamphetamine manufacturing lab in a tent at a Cape Cod homeless camp is headed to court.

Police say 31-year-old Stewart Catchings is scheduled to be arraigned Monday.

The cape Cod Times reports that officers went to the camp on old cranberry bogs in Yarmouth owned by Cape Cod Healthcare on Friday after complaints from workers. A Yarmouth Natural Resources officer was allegedly attacked in the area on Nov. 11.

Inside two of five tents, police say they found propane tanks, several dozen batteries, a burner, vials, lye, lighter fluid and household chemicals, among other items that can be used to make meth.

Catchings was held over the weekend on $10,000 cash bail. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer.
