Tracy police raid meth lab at farm

TRACY, CA - Tracy police busted a meth lab at a Tracy farm Thursday around 4 a.m.

Police arrested four people and seized two assault rifles and a pound of meth, said Sgt. Tony Sheneman.

Sheneman said the raid took place at a remote location, which required half of the team to enter the area via three boats. The boats were piloted by the Department of Fish and Game.

The farm included four out buildings off of the main road.

Sheneman said the four suspects were in custody immediately and the investigation wrapped up by 11 a.m.

The four suspects face charges of drug possession with the intent to distribute, felony possession of a fire arm and possession of assault weapons.
