East Tennessee police bust lab at Econo Lodge

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- Chattanooga police were trying to serve a warrant when they smelled telltale chemicals.

Narcotics officers were called Monday morning and arrested 5 people at an Econo Lodge motel.

Police spokeswoman Sgt. Jerri Weary said charges were expected to follow.

A hazardous materials team was called out to remove the chemicals. An evacuation wasn't necessary.

Police said this is the third meth operation found in a motel room this year in Chattanooga.

No injuries have been reported.
