Police find alleged meth lab in AuSable Forks

New York State Police say they have discovered an inactive methamphetamine lab in AuSable Forks and are investigating.

State Police got a call at 9:29 a.m. Saturday about a possible meth lab at 14219 state Route 9N in AuSable Forks — right on the main street through town. When troopers and the State Police Contaminated Crime Scene Emergency Response Team arrived at the scene, they did find a math lab there, according to State Police Troop B Public Information Officer Jennifer Fleishman.

The meth lab was inactive but contained “several precursors for the manufacture of methamphetamines” in a vacant apartment, Fleishman said.

State Police’s CCSERT secured the scene, and the case remains under investigation, according to Fleishman. No one has been charged in connection with this yet.

The door to the apartment has been blocked off with crime scene tape.

Essex County property records show the house where the apartment is located was sold in 2020 to an LLC with linked addresses in both Albany and AuSable Forks, KBNYII LLC, which was formed in 2018. Property records say the house has three apartments.

Anyone with information about this case can contact Troop B at 518-897-2000.
