Six arrested in bust of alleged meth lab near Northfield school, library
Arrested and charged were Jason Buckley, 36, Janell Dubreuil, 27, Amanda Warner, 26, and Brian Bateman, 27, all of 6 Elm St. in Northfield, police said.
Also was arrested was Joseph Cole, 26, of Boscawen, and Anthony Ottati, 23, of 321 West Main St., in Tilton, according to police.
On Dec. 31, Northfield police said they received information from a concerned resident, who said there was suspicious activity at 6 Elm St.
"There were concerns that individuals within two units at the … building were involved in the manufacturing of methamphetamine," police said in a press release. "Tilton Police also received reports from citizens with concerns of the same nature regarding these individuals."
This building is located directly across the street from an elementary school and public library, which police said caused "heightened safety concern to the public, also the fact that this apartment building was occupied by many other families with children."
Police said there were several people involved in the operation of manufacturing methamphetamine, and that a child was potentially being exposed to the harmful effects of the manufacturing.
At 9 a.m. Thursday, police obtained search warrants, and officers from Northfield, Tilton, Franklin, Belmont, Sanbornton, the Merrimack County Sheriff's Office, the Belknap County Sheriff's Office, State Police and the DEA converged on the property and conducted a search of the two units.
The six being charged are being held at the Merrimack County Jail waiting to be arraigned on Friday.
"During the time of this event the Union Sanborn School was secured and all children and staff were safe. The library was also locked down for a period of time to ensure safety of its patrons. There is not a threat to the public safety at this time and all individuals involved are in police custody," police said.
