    Sometimes you might find a stray bug or worm in your produce, but a dangerous black widow spider? Believe it. That was the case for Jacob Vaughn, a third-year medical student at UTMC, who bought a bunch of fresh broccoli at Kroger in Maumee, only to find a large arachnid alive and acting feisty on the vegetables. The South Toledo man said he discovered the spider while washing off the broccoli before cooking it when "the spider came out and started waving his hands. It was pret...

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

One person is in custody after an apparent meth lab bust at a home in the 1100 block of Warwick in central Toledo.

Police arrived on the scene late Tuesday night believing they were making a routine drug bust before discovering meth-making tools inside the house.

Police spent six hours canvassing the home.  

Firefighters on scene confirmed a meth lab was being run inside the house and that the person or people involved "were no amateurs."

Erich Schielhlen, 44, is now facing four charges, including possessing illegal chemicals to manufacture drugs.

Several buckets of materials were carried out of the home by HAZMAT crews. Police found beakers, tubing and red phosphorous, as well as a shot gun and other drugs.

"Glad we raided it, glad we got it out of the neighborhood," said TPD Sgt. Joe Heffernan. "These labs can be dangerous. These things can cause a lot of toxic waste."

The neighborhood has now been given the all-clear and deemed safe, but neighbors are still stunned by the news.

"He was a nice guy," said neighbor Richard Knox. "I hung out with him, went fishing a couple times, but never would have thought he was doing anything like that."

"What if something would have went wrong and we all would have blown up?" said another concerned neighbor, who wished to remain anonymous.
