Possible mobile meth lab explosion in Mishawaka

MISHAWAKA, Ind. -- Mishawaka Police are at Milburn Boulevard and Burdett Street investigating a possible mobile meth lab explosion.


Police were called to the scene around 1 p.m. Tuesday after receiving an anonymous tip about a possible meth lab explosion.


They found a GMC SUV parked on Burdett Street and a man was inside the vehicle.


He was taken into custody.


The man is at the police station waiting to be questioned.


This explosion happened right across the street from an elementary school.


Residents say they have noticed a lot of problems recently and thought something like this was going to happen at some point.


“I had a feeling this place was going to get raided. I didn’t know if I wanted to come down here and beat the brakes off of somebody or take my lawn chair and sit back and watch it happen. I'm ecstatic and I think it’s great. Couldn’t be more pleased," said Bobette Shuamber.


The Special Operations Unit received a warrant and searched the vehicle.


The car was towed away late in the afternoon and police cleared the scene.
