Man Arrested After Suspected Meth Lab Discovered in Park Forest
A State College man was charged Tuesday, after a suspected methamphetamine lab was found in a house located at 103 Cherry Ridge Road in Park Forest.
David Brady, 31, is charged with illegal dumping of methamphetamine waste, manufacture of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to court documents.
The Ferguson Township Police Department notified the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Bureau of Narcotics Investigation about a possible meth lab after a resident in the house complained to police.
An officer went to Brady's property and reportedly spotted items typically used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine, including sliced lithium batteries and an empty bottle of drain cleaner.
Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane says that the suspected lab is part of an ongoing investigation in Centre County as well as other counties. Investigators are looking for people who buy large amounts of methamphetamine related ingredients, including cold medications containing pseudoephedrine.
Brady is out on $25,000 unsecured bail and will have his preliminary hearing Aug. 13, according to a news release.
