DORRANCE TWP. — Two men were detained for questioning by state police at Hazleton after a suspected mobile methamphetamine lab was found in a vehicle outside the Dorrance Township Municipal Building on Tuesday.
Township secretary Pat Davis said she noticed two vehicles had been parking near the municipal building since Thanksgiving. Davis said normally the vehicles would leave when she arrived for work in the morning.
But, Davis said the two cars were there Tuesday morning prompting her to call authorities.
Wright Township Police Chief Royce A. Engler, who is Dorrance Township supervisor, said Richard Seiwell, of Dorrance Township, and Joseph Estok, of Wright Township, were taken to the state police barracks in West Hazleton for questioning. It was not immediately known if any charges were filed.
A Toyota and a Mitsubishi were towed from the scene to the state police barracks.
