CMPD tells FOX 46 Charlotte, initially, it "thought they had something" in terms of a meth lab bust. Investigators on scene told FOX 46 there was a meth cook happening in the woods behind the town-homes.
CMPD later adding, there was a "trash pile" in the woods with components that can be part of a meth lab but there was no meth lab.
"It's really scary, really dangerous around my kids," said neighbor Alyssa Perez.
FOX 46 Charlotte observed a door that was kicked in at the home of the bust.
"Especially if you pay so much to live in a neighborhood in Ballantyne, you would never think that was happening," said Perez.
