Second largest drug lab in Dutch history found in Kerkrade

The Limburg police discovered a massive drug lab in Kerkrade on Monday evening. This is the second largest drug lab ever found in the Netherlands, a spokesperson for the Limburg police said to NU.nl.

The spokesperson called it an "illegal chemical plant" and said that local residents escaped a "disaster", due to a big risk of the lab exploding. The National Dismantling Support Facility is currently helping the police with mapping the laboratory. After that the complex will be dismantled.

So far one man was arrested. He is in custody for questioning. The police expect that more arrests will follow.
