Meth lab located in Shamokin apartment building

A member of the state police Clandestine Laboratory Response Team collects evidence from an apartment building Monday afternoon at 405 E. Sunbury St., Shamokin. Shamokin police officers were summoned to assist state parole agents at 12:20 p.m. and discovered chemicals and other items associated with a meth lab.

SHAMOKIN — Two Shamokin roommates were charged Monday morning with operating three active one-pot meth labs out of their Sunbury Street apartment last week.

John M. Litchard, 37, and Melissa Anne Temple, 39, of 405 E. Sunbury St., Apt. 2-1, who were taken into custody April 26 after an investigation revealed they were operating meth labs, are charged by Patrolman Raymond Siko II with nine criminal offenses.
