Richmond RCMP are dismantling a suspected meth lab on Cambie Road.

Police were called to a townhouse in the 11000 block of Cambie Road on Thursday after getting a call that there was a strange odour in the area. Police found what can best be described as a "pre-cursor lab where it appears the chemicals needed to make meth were being broken down," Richmond RCMP said in a press release.

Police expect to be on scene for a number of hours.

Cpl. Stephanie Ashton of the Richmond RCMP says  “these types of labs can be very dangerous and this is a well-populated area of Richmond,  we are very glad someone called to report the unusual smell.”

Police are asking anyone with information about this incident to contact Richmond RCMP at Richmond_Tips.RICHMOND.EDIV_LMD@rcmp-grc.gc.ca or you if wish to remain anonymous call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS  (8477).
