Meth lab explodes during NH police raid

Three suspects were arrested in connection with the operation

Associated Press

FRANKLIN, N.H. — A New Hampshire official says a man arrested after a raid and explosion at a meth lab was wearing rubber gloves and carrying a laundry basket of chemicals when officers entered the building.

Tilton Police Chief Robert Cormier says the 31-year-old man was "just starting to cook" when police conducted the raid Tuesday morning at a Franklin apartment building. Police also arrested a 32-year-old woman at the home on drug charges.

A witness says he saw the upper floor of the building catch on fire after the arrests were made.

Police had requested a lockdown of Franklin High School shortly before the raid. The house is less than a tenth of a mile from the school.
