NORCROSS, Ga. — When self-described "nosy neighbor" Cosetta Campbell stepped outside to investigate police activity near her home in Norcross on Monday evening, even she never suspected what was afoot.
Officers were raiding what would turn out to be one of the largest methamphetamine labs in the nation just a few houses down from Campbell, in an otherwise quiet crook of Newbury Road. Local and federal law enforcement officers carted away 984 pounds of methamphetamine worth an estimated $44 million. The slate gray two-story house in question had been unoccupied since 2008, and no one had been seen coming or going in months, Campbell said.
