Officers for the Arapahoe County Narcotics Team, which includes members of Englewood police, the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office and the Littleton Police Department, discovered upon carrying out a search-and-seizure warrant Nov. 2 that meth was being produced inside the residence. The materials were safely sampled and removed in a joint effort between the narcotics team, the Denver Fire Department and the United States Drug Enforcement Administration.
"The property was deemed uninhabitable and will need remediation prior to occupants being allowed to return," Englewood police said in a statement. The property owner remains cooperative with the required clean-up process, the statement said.
There is no known threat to the public related to the incident, and there were no reported injuries, said Chad Read, spokesman for Englewood police.
The criminal investigation related to the search continues, and no additional information was released.
