VERO BEACH, FL -- Two people were taken into custody Tuesday morning after law enforcement officials raided a house suspected of being a methamphetamine lab.
The Multi-Agency Criminal Enforcement Unit had been investigating the home for about a month and conducted some undercover purchases at the home in the 1300 block of 30th Avenue, Vero Beach, Indian River County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Deputy Jeff Luther said.
“The evidence inside the home indicated an operation to cook meth for personal use, but we monitored a large amount of traffic to the home,” said Sheriff’s Lt. Darin Jones.
Two residents of the home, Scott MacIntyre, 37, and Kelly Tyndall, 30, were charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and unlawful possession of listed chemicals.
Investigators said Tuesday afternoon they were still trying to determine how much methamphetamine was being manufactured there, Luther said. Federal authorities are also investigating, Jones said.
The home is on a one-acre lot in an older part of the Vero Beach area, Luther said.
