SCHENECTADY — Deputies preparing to evict tenants from an apartment in town found a meth lab Monday morning inside the unit, Sheriff Dominic Dagostino said.

A state hazardous materials team was in town to assist authorities in examining and securing the makeshift drug lab deputies found at 9:30 a.m. in apartments in the Dutch Village on the north side of town. . The building where the lab was found was evacuated due to concerns about the safety of other tenants.

Dagostino said deputies got no response when they knocked on the door and called for the resort’s maintenance crews to open. Inside, deputies found the apparent laboratory.

No tenants were in the apartment, but the sheriff said authorities were trying to negotiate the man’s surrender.

The complex is located next to Boulevard Dorwaldt.

Municipal police, firefighters and paramedics were on the scene.
