Possible meth lab in Concord caused DEA to investigate chemicals associated with drug production
CONCORD – Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) officials were called in to inspect a home at 25 Perley St. in Concord after city police found items that were “consistent with those used for the production of methamphetamine” Friday afternoon.
Concord Police were initially on scene to assist the Division of Youth, Children and Families with a welfare check on a child, but Lieutenant Cori Casey said officers discovered the chemicals once inside.
Two arrests were ultimately made, but not in connection to either the welfare check of the child or the chemicals officers found.
James Mott, 31, of Concord, had several warrants out for his arrest, including charges of assault, theft and criminal mischief.
Adam Roz, 41, also of Concord, was arrested on a Belknap County Sheriff’s warrant.
Megan Doyle of the Concord Monitor reported that the child was taken out of the home and medically evaluated as a precaution. Additionally, Doyle noted that other adults were on scene but aren’t facing any charges.
No further information was made available from authorities as of 10:15 a.m. Saturday morning. The investigation remains ongoing.
