In one of the smaller units at the storage facility in Pawcatuck police found the makings of a meth lab.
The owner of Wes Store Mini Storage says the unit had only been rented for about a month and he was surprised like many to find out what was being kept inside it.
“Nothing was cooked here,” says owner Richard Morrone. “It was parts of a lab were put into inventory.”
The storage facility on Elmata Avenue is on the border of Rhode Island and Morrone believes that is where the actual meth lab was located with only the materials hidden here in Stonington.
Police confirmed the person who rented the unit is currently incarcerated.
“They got a tip… that he stored the stuff here before he went to jail,” says Morrone.
