– THREE people have been arrested after police found a clandestine drug lab while making a routine visit to a house in Melbourne’s southeast last night.

The local officers stumbled across the laboratory as well as drug manufacturing equipment and a loaded shotgun when they attended the Doveton home, on Doveton Ave, for an unrelated matter about 7pm.

A 48-year-old Rye man, 21-year-old man and 38-year-old woman were arrested at the scene.

The men remain in custody and are being questioned by police.

The woman has been released pending further inquiries.

A crime scene guard was in place at the house overnight, with detectives from the Clandestine Laboratory Squad to attend the scene today.

Casey crime investigation unit detective Senior Constable Paul Holland said the lab had been recently used to make drugs.

“It’s a medium sized clandestine laboratory that has been found at the address. Indications are that recently there has been … a cook that was conducted at that house with amphetamine,” he said.

“It’s too early to tell (how much it’s worth) because it’s still being dismantled.

“The clandestine laboratory squad experts have come out in conjunction with the forensic science centre to make it safe because it’s recently been active, so there is high levels of toxic gas detected inside the house.

“Once it’s safe, it will be dismantled, then any drugs or firearms removed.”

He said police also found a shotgun, believed to have been stolen in a burglary in Sale, during the raid.

Constable Holland hailed the discovery a success for police.

“Residents should look out of suspicious people coming and going around their house,” he said.

“When they are cooking with methamphetamine there is often a strong acidic smell, which is similar to cat urine, that could emanate from the house and that is a pretty good sign that something unusual is going on.”

*Anyone with information that may help their investigation is urged to phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
