SAINT PETERSBURG, Fla. - A man is in custody for more than a warrant for arrest. Saint Petersburg police responded to a residence on 4th Avenue South for a warrant arrest just after midnight Saturday.
The wanted suspect, Clark Reed, had two prior counts of sale, delivery and possession of meth on a $100,000 bond. As officers attempted to arrest Reed he hid the garage of the house. When officers went into the garage they found a functioning meth lab.
The neighboring house was promptly evacuated and other homes close by were notified of the situation.
St. Petersburg Fire Rescue crews were able to dissemble the lab and remove the harmful chemicals.
Reed was later taken into custody by officers.
