    Suspected meth lab located

    ST. ALBANS — Vermont State Police arrested a Missouri man early Friday morning after raiding a suspected methamphetamine lab in an apartment in St. Albans.

    Travis Clemmons, 30, of St. Louis pleaded not guilty Friday to a charge of conspiracy to manufacture the drug.

    The office of the Franklin County state’s attorney is prosecuting the case.

    The arrest came after the Vermont Drug Task Force removed chemicals used in making methamphetamine from an apartment on Thursday, authorities said.

    No one was home at the time.

    The site was rendered safe by a state hazardous materials team and the state police Clandestine Laboratory Team.

    Police learned Thursday night that Clemmons had been staying at a hotel in St. Albans, but he left before police arrived, authorities said. He was found at 1:40 a.m. Friday hiding in a drainage ditch near the hotel and arraigned later in the day, police said.

    He is being held on $150,000 bail at the Northwest State Correctional Facility in St. Albans.

    The investigating is ongoing, police said.
