An anonymous tip led officers to the home on Thursday where they found the meth lab. Police say the old style of cooking meth is more dangerous and takes a lot longer to finish.

The lab was stashed in a backpack so that it could be easily set up at another location.

Officers are searching for Fitzgerald to arrest him.

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office said this is the 17th meth lab bust this year.
