HARRINGTON, Del. - Four people have been arrested, after Police say they found a meth lab in a Harrington home. Delaware State Police say the discovery of the lab came out of a four month long investigation by the Kent County Drug Unit into the manufacturing of Methamphetamine at a home on Woodyard Road.

On Wednesday, around 6:15 AM, the Kent County Drug Task Force, along with the DSP Special Operations Response Team, Dover Police Department, DNREC, and Little Creek Fire Department responded to the home with a search warrant. Officials say once at the home, they found 29-year-old Joshua Wilson, of Harrington, in a detached garage, and took him into custody, after a brief struggle. Troopers say Wilson had .1 grams of methamphetamine in his possession.

Also arrested in the garage were Colt Towers, 30 of Greenwood, and Norman Meyer Jr., 51 of Federalsburg, MD. Police say during the arrests, they found a 4 inch dagger on Towers, and three Oxycodone pills on Meyer. Thomas Vanvliet, 40 of Harrington, was arrested inside his home.

A search of the property reportedly revealed equipment and component mixtures of the manufacturing stages of Meth along with key ingredients in making the drug. Police say they also found three rifles, multiple types of ammunition, and a .38 caliber revolver, during the search.

Both Vanvliet, the homeowner, and Wilson were charged with three counts of possession of a deadly weapon by a person prohibited, operating a clandestine laboratory, manufacturing methamphetamine, conspiracy 2nd degree, resisting arrest, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Vanvliet is being held at James T. Vaughn Correctional Institution on $59,200 bond, while Wilson is being held on $123,200 bond.

Towers, who was found to be wanted out of Sussex County Family Court, was charged with carrying a concealed deadly weapon, and held at JTVCC on $2,000 bond. Meyer was charged with possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, and possession of drug paraphernalia, and given a $400 bond for the charges, but was found to be wanted out of Sussex County Court of Common Pleas, so was also incarcerated at JTVCC.

Police say they partially closed Woodyard Road for around four hours during the investigation. Nearby residents were not evacuated, because Police say it was determined that there was no immediate hazard.
