Kentville meth bust

A convenience store in Kentville will be open again today despite a busy weekend.

Police found a crystal meth lab in a basement apartment of the North End Market on Mee Road Friday night after the store owners reported a funny smell.  Police evacuated the building because of the toxic and explosive nature of the chemicals used to make the drug.  They arrested a 22 year old man who will be in court today.

That wasn’t the end of the troubles at the store.  During the cleanup a window was left open, and pipes froze.  Then there was a small fire yesterday  as they were using a blow torch to try to thaw out the pipes.  But the store was open again later.
