Drug Investigation Underway

January 3rd, 2014 by WCBC Radio

On January 2, 2014 @ 09:22 p.m. the Cumberland Fire and Police Departments responded to the 500 block of Linden Street for fire inside of a residence.  While inside the residence Cumberland firefighters observed some suspicious items which lead them to believe that some of these materials may have been used to make methamphetamine.


The C3I Narcotics Unit responded to the scene to conduct an investigation.  They were assisted by a member of their unit from the Maryland State Police as well as a Cumberland Police Officer who is certified by the Drug Enforcement Agency to investigate and dismantle methamphetamine labs.


The material was rendered inactive and the area was made safe by those officers with the assistance from the Cumberland Fire Department and Allegany County Hazardous Material Team.


The C3I Narcotics Unit is continuing with the investigation and charges will be filed upon the completion of the investigation.
