Colonie busts its first meth lab

Manriquez was arrested and arraigned in Colonie Justice Court and remanded to the Albany County Correctional Facility. He is set to appear in court on March 16 at 6 p.m. for a preliminary hearing.

Winn said there are no arrests currently pending but police will be interviewing other people believed to be involved.

"Can't say for sure but there might be at least one other arrest of people who would have either been in possession or using this," he said. "We do have indications had some help in the basement."

Winn stressed that Colonie does not have a meth problem.

"We don't believe we have a meth problem," he said, echoing that this is only the second meth lab to be found in Albany County. "It's something we have never seen before."
