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 or you if wish to remain anonymous call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS  (8477).
