3 arrested for operating a meth lab in Kent County

Delaware State Police arrested three men for allegedly manufacturing meth at a home outside Farmington.

At around 3 a.m. on Sunday, troopers responded the the 2000 block of Hickman Road after receiving a report that people were making drugs in a trailer behind the home.

When officers got there, they noticed equipment and mixtures as well as a strong smell of ammonia.

Then, they saw an active "one-pot" on the floor of the trailer and notified the county drug unit.

The Kent County Drug Unit arrived on scene and confirmed that there was a "one-pot" meth manufacturing lab on the property.

Brian W. Holben, 21 of Farmington, Hunter C. Stockman, 22 of Bridgeville and Lathan Verry, 21 of Greenwood were arrested and taken into police custody.

Hickman Road remained closed for about three hours before officials reopened it once it was deemed safe.
