A nearby home day care center had to be evacuated because of the “volatile and hazardous chemicals” used to make the drug, Delaware State Police Master Cpl. Gary E. Fournier said tonight.

Michael G. Cairo, 35, of the 1900 block of Deep Grass Lane, was charged with two counts of manufacturing the drug and possession of drug paraphernalia, Fournier said. His bail information was not immediately available.

Police did not disclose what prompted the start of the investigation.

It culminated about 12:30 p.m. today, as members of the Delaware State Police Kent County Drug Unit, assisted by the Milford Police Department and Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, executed a search warrant at Cairo’s home, Fournier said.

Troopers took him into custody without incident, transporting him to Troop 3 in Dover to be charged, he said.

As detectives searched the house, Fournier said they found mixtures from various methamphetamine manufacturing stages, along with ingredients to make the drug and other drug paraphernalia.

The Delaware Department of Transportation closed Deep Grass Lane for about three hours as the meth lab was dismantled and removed from Cairo’s home, Fournier said.
