Neighbors who reported suspicious behavior led police to a meth lab near Augustana College.
Three people have been arrested and now face several drug charges.
This latest meth lab bust fits a trend we've seen lately in Sioux Falls. Police call it a one-pot method, which is smaller than traditional meth labs.
Police have been investigating the house on in the 2200-block of South Grange Avenue for several months now. 37-year-old Heather Schmidt, 24-year-old Nicholas Sherard and 18-year-old Jonathan Wallace will all be in court on Thursday for charges connected to the bust.
Neighbors noticed several different people would come and go all through the day and at night.
"Most people, when they go to visit, they don't stay for a couple of minutes to visit. When you see people coming and going, they think that's odd. That's the time of information we like," Sioux Falls Police Public Information Officer Sam Clemens said.
Police say they traced the meth-making components back to Wallace, who faces a manufacturing a controlled-substance charge.
The Crime Stoppers tips aren't the only way police found out about this. We'll have more on that later today on KELOLAND News.
