Remnants of drug lab dumped in rural Langley

The Clandestine Lab team was called in by RCMP to clean up drug lab residue put in barrels and dumped in rural south Langley on Thursday morning, Aug. 7.

A passerby noticed some blue barrels in a ditch around 10 Avenue and 232 Street .

Township firefighters were called and Langley RCMP showed up soon after, said Langley RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Patrick Davies.

“The investigators confirm that it appears to be from some kind of drug lab,” said Davies. “But the barrels weren’t leaking and there is no danger to the environment.”

Environmental officials were called out anyway, and the team cleaned up the dumped toxic waste by the afternoon.

The making of meth and other illicit drugs leave a lot of toxic waste that has to be dumped somewhere.

Police are asking for any witnesses of suspicious vehicles or activity in the area call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
