MARION (Shawn Kline) -- Police take out a pair of meth labs in 72-hours. The first, on Jefferson Street in Marion and on Thursday, an apartment on North Prospect Street.
Rick Cook, 40, was arrested and charged with the illegal manufacture of methamphetamine and possession of chemicals for the manufacturing of methamphetamine.
"These labs are very toxic and very dangerous," Major Bill Collins of Marion Police said. "I encourage anyone with information about other suspected labs to contact law enforcement immediately."
Police were tipped-off about the lab on Prospect Street following a related bust found in Richwood, Ohio.
Police ask to report any tips about other suspected labs in Marion due to the highly toxic and explosive chemicals involved in the manufacturing of the illegal substance.
