— CUMBERLAND — Charges are pending in an investigation of an apparent methamphetamine lab found Thursday night in the 500 block of Linden Street, according to the C3I Narcotics Unit.

Cumberland fire and police responded to a fire in the residence at 9:22 p.m. and observed suspicious items that led them to believe that some of the materials may have been used to make meth.

The C3I Narcotics Unit response included a member of their unit from the Maryland State Police as well as a Cumberland Police officer who is certified by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration to investigate and dismantle methamphetamine labs.

The material was rendered inactive and the area was made safe with assistance from the Cumberland Fire Department and Allegany County Hazardous Incident Response Team.

The C3I Narcotics Unit is continuing with the investigation and charges will be filed upon the completion of the investigation.
