DEA: Dangerous Meth lab found inside apartment


SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. -- When DEA agents walked into an apartment in Sandy Springs Monday, they were so alarmed with what they found, they evacuated the entire building. 

Special agents found what they called "an extremely dangerous environment" including an active methamphetamine conversion lab. Flammable solvents were cooking on the stove. Just feet away from those combustible liquids, there were several candles burning in an effort to mask the smell of the meth lab. 

The apartment building at 6900 Roswell Road was immediately evacuated until the lab was cleaned up by specialists. 

The search warrant served at the apartment seized 67 pounds of meth and 15 gallons of meth in a solution which would produce an additional 59 pounds of the drug. Four defendants were arrested. They included: Juan Francisco Martinez-Nunez, Salvador Ivan Alonso-Mendoza, Diego Ivan Parra, and Ismael Martinez-Anallo.  All four were booked into the Fulton County Jail and charged with reckless endangerment and trafficking in methamphetamine.
