GREENSBORO, N.C — A small methamphetamine lab was discovered and dismantled at a Greensboro hotel on Wednesday, according to Public Information Officer Susan Danielsen with Greensboro police.

At approximately noon Wednesday, a staff member of the Cavalier Inn, located at 312 W. JJ Drive, called Guilford Metro 911 regarding a suspected meth operation taking place in a ground floor room.

Authorities confirmed that meth was being cooked in a “one-pot” operation.

The Greensboro Fire Department’s HazMat team was on the scene to evaluate and mitigate any potentially harmful effects of the chemicals, Danielsen said.

The State Bureau of Investigation assisted with the investigation, processed the evidence and rendered the room safe.

Officials believe this was an isolated operation and not connected to a large-scale manufacturing ring, Danielsen said.

Police are currently pursuing leads that may result in the arrest of the drug manufacturer.

Anyone with information regarding illegal drug activity is encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at (336) 373-1000.
