TOWN OF NEWBURGH – State and Town of Newburgh Police raided a house at 129 Dogwood Lane in the Balmville area Sunday morning in what was believed to be the location of a meth lab on the quiet residential street.

Police were on the scene for about six hours starting at 7 a.m. Many of the investigators wore hazmat suits as they carried out large bags of evidence.

Neighbors said they were shocked when they woke up to all of the commotion. One said a man, believed in his 60s, lived alone in the house.

There was no word if anyone was arrested and police at the scene had no comment.

Orange County Hazmat and the Cronomer Valley Fire Department were also at the scene.
