Police bust major meth lab in Niles, arrest 1

Niles police made a major meth lab bust last Thursday at about 3:30 p.m. at a house in the 1100 block of Cedar Street.

They had received a tip about an active meth lab there.

After getting a search warrant, police found about 20 discarded “one pot" meth labs throughout the house.

Because of the contents inside, officers had to wear hazmat suits to clean the house of all the meth materials.

They also arrested Dennis Burtzlaff, 48, for one felony count of Manufacturing Meth and another count of Operating and Maintaining a Meth Lab.

He is being held on $20,000 bond.
