City police say they have seized a drug laboratory allegedly used in manufacturing methamphetamines.

Detective Bill Sevy said the equipment was seized from a local storage shed.

He said Washington County authorities are seeking extradition of Bruce Cook, age unknown, of Chula Vista, Calif., for questioning in connection with the seizure.

In addition to the equipment, substantial quantities of chemicals required to manufacture methamphetamines also were seized, Sevy said.

Cook was arrested late last Friday by the Nevada Highway Patrol outside Glendale, Nev. He was being held in the Clark County, Nev., Jail on various drug-related charges.

The seizure is the latest in an ongoing crackdown on illegal drugs in Washington County.
