LISBON, Ohio (WKBN) – A methamphetamine lab was raided Friday afternoon on East Liverpool Road just outside of Lisbon.
Neighbors said they were shocked to learn of the operation. But the woman who owns the house where the raid took place, Janet Gibson, said she was even more shocked to learn who the suspects were: Her two grandsons.
The Columbiana County Drug Task Force said they found several “one pot” operations in the garage and around the property.
“They just told me it could be very dangerous and it’s very flammable, which is not good,” Gibson said.
She said she was in Lisbon at the time the drug task force was searching her house for methamphetamine, and she was shocked to see officers in front of her house when she got home.
“And it caught me by surprise. I knew nothing about this and I had no idea what they were here for,” Gibson said.
She said her two grandsons are in their late 20s and have a history of drug addiction. She said she has tried to help them get their lives on track, but this latest incident was just too much for her to handle.
“Yeah, it makes me pretty angry, pretty upset. But we just have to deal with it and go on,” Gibson said.
No one was arrested during the raid and charges are pending in the case.
The investigation led to many one-pot labs being found around the property. The one-pot labs are essentially mini labs being made inside of empty plastic bottles.
The Columbiana Drug Task Force also found digital scales and chemicals used to manufacture methamphetamine.
