Police: Arrests made in Daytona Beach motel meth lab bust



VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. - WFTV was there as Hazmat crews dismantled a meth lab inside two rooms at a Daytona Beach motel Thursday night.

Police said five people are facing charges for the potentially explosive and dangerous situation.

Two floors of the Extended Stay Deluxe motel on Bill France Boulevard had to be evacuated.

Police said a guest staying at the motel smelled something suspicious and called authorities.

Firefighters arrived at the motel and found a meth lab in one room and the makings of another meth lab in another room. Officials said they were located on the second and third floors, which were evacuated.

In all, 32 guests were forced to move to the first floor and stay in an isolated area.

Hazmat teams dismantled the labs and packaged the chemicals so they can be disposed.

"Everything has been cleared at this point. There were no explosions or obvious signs of explosions or no signs of explosions in the room. This is a situation that could've been dangerous because of the volatile substance they're using to produce this chemical," said Lt. Larry Stoney of the Daytona Beach Fire Department.

Police said Todd Kwiatkowski, Victoria Brown, Christine Stevens and Henry Williams are facing charges. They said Lauren Cyr was arrested for outstanding warrants.
