Comments Off on Gwinnett County SWAT team decontaminated after being exposed to Methamphetamine during lab bust

NORCROSS, Georgia — Gwinnett County Sheriff’s officials say members of the department’s SWAT team were decontaminated after being exposed to methamphetamine during a lab bust.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Shannon Volkodav told local media outlets that authorities were helping the Department of Homeland Security execute a search warrant at a home in Norcross Thursday, and were exposed to the drug while taking a suspect into custody.

Volkodav says the exposure caused skin and eye irritation to eight officers who were on the scene.

Authorities set up a tent outside the Gwinnett Medical Center and called a hazardous materials team in for assistance.
