Crews from Triage Bio Clean Services worked to clean a building in Washington at 322 North Avenue D where a methamphetamine lab was found in March. Bill Tyrrell, owner, states that a building of this size with the number of items inside takes approximately two weeks to clean and make the meth inert. During the cleaning process, workers wear full body suits and masks to protect themselves and use soap and high pressure washers. Following an executed search warrant, the building was closed by officials due to the hazardous contamination conditions from the methamphetamine residue.

Michael Miller, 40-years-old, and 30-year-old Jeffrey Marie were arrested for conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine following the search in March. Miller pleaded guilty and according to the court record, he will serve a mandatory one-third of 25 years, reduced by one-third.
