A 32-year-old Lockport woman was charged this afternoon with third-degree unlawful production of methamphetamine and endangering the welfare of a child following what police are now saying was the discovery of a meth lab at 240 Pine Street.

Earlier today, police told ENP they did not believe meth was being produced in the home but that there were suspected drugs found, however, LPD now says police discovered a "methamphetamine production lab" in the home.

Ashley Urban, 240 Pine St., Upper was visited by LPD after they received a tip of possible drug activity in the apartment. After speaking to her, police received another tip that there was a male hiding in the attic of the home because he had an outstanding warrant and "that the parties were cooking 'meth.' "

Urban allowed police to search her home. In doing so, LPD found Derrick D. Powell, 22 Harvey Ave., Apt. D, hiding in the attic.

While in the home, patrol found "several clear pop bottles in plain view with unknown liquids in them," leading them to call the Niagara County Drug Task Force to the scene to process the evidence.

Powell was turned over to the Niagara County Sheriff's Office on an outstanding warrant. Further charges are pending.
