Two Arrests in Suspected Meth Lab Bust

(Updated at 1:40 p.m. on 12/23/21) Two men have been arrested in connection with last night’s bust of a suspected meth lab in Virginia Square.

Arlington resident William [redacted], 31, and Leonard [redacted], 44, have been arrested and charged with Attempted Manufacturing of Methamphetamine.

Police were called to an apartment building at 801 N. Monroe Street around 9:30 p.m. on Monday for a dispute. When they got inside, officers noticed items consistent with the manufacturing of meth.

Due to the volatile nature of methamphetamine production, residents on three floors of the 225-unit building were evacuated as a safety precaution. Hazmat and bomb squad teams assisted police in their investigation of the suspicious materials.

Once the scene was deemed safe, members of the ACPD Vice Narcotics Unit executed a search warrant, and arrested [redacted] and [redacted].

The police investigation is ongoing.
