The US Drug Enforcement Agency based in Atlanta brought its HAZMAT unit to Calhoun Monday evening after police discovered a makeshift meth lab at a residence on Calhoun Avenue.

Area residents were asked to stay clear of the area of Calhoun Ave. and Harlan St. due to the dangers of possible exposure to Hazardous Material, according to Chief Tony Pyle.
