Hundreds of gallons of drug-making chemicals found in illegal lab

The police have found about 100 jerry cans filled with chemicals in the Brabant town Son en Breugel. 

The chemicals in the cans are hydrogen gas and acetone, and were most likely intended for the manufacture of the drug ecstasy (XTC). Each jerry can held about 30 liters.

The garage where the chemicals were found is located in a residential area. According to the police it posed a great risk to the surroundings since gas cylinders were also found in the garage.

Thus far no one has been arrested. Other locations in Brabant and Limburg were also raided today.
