TAMAQUA, Pa. - Police in Schuylkill County say they stumbled upon a meth lab.
They also say they know who was running it, they just have to find them.
Police in Tamaqua are still looking for Kelsey Anderson, 21, and Thomas Heiser, 33.
Police say they fled their home after a fire that led to the discovery of a meth lab.
Samuel Garcia says after an alleged meth lab was discovered in his apartment building at 14 West Broad Street in Tamaqua, he wants to find a new place to live.
"I opened up the door and I see smoke all over. I said, 'What's going on?' and they said, 'We have to evacuate the building!'" said Garcia.
Police say around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday night they were called to Garcia's neighbor's apartment.
They say a fire was burning in the bathroom and items consistent with cooking the drug methamphetamine were found nearby.
"I felt like a vibration in my kitchen. Like a rumble," said Dorothy Forte, who lives in the building next door.
She says she fears for her family.
"It shook me up some. Because I have grandkids. And this is a nice town to raise them. But with this going on I don't know now."
Investigators say this discovery comes just one week after Tamaqua police officers underwent special methamphetamine training.
Borough Councilman Justin Startzel says it's training like this that keeps officers prepared as meth labs continue to pop up in Tamaqua.
"It helps them become more aware of what they need to look for and it helps them become more educated on tackling issues like this," said Startzel.
Councilman Startzel says if you see any suspicious activity in your community, you can contact the Schuylkill County Drug Task Force at 1-800-414-1406.
