A meth lab is discovered in an Evansville apartment building.

Police received the call around 11:30 Monday night from Buckner Towers on Cherry Street.  Officials say a maintenance worker discovered the meth lab in a fourth floor hallway.

That floor was evacuated by police and fire crews while they transported the lab outside. Narcotic Task Force officials dismantled the lab within an hour outside of the building.

Then residents were cleared to return to their apartments.

52-year-old Thomas Boswell and 51-year-old Alan Vanwinkle are charged with dealing meth.

Officials say they are still on the lookout for two other suspects whose names have not been released.
