Three Lothian residents were arrested Monday on charges of operating a suspected methamphetamine laboratory, Anne Arundel County police said yesterday.

Deborah Lee Henry, 46, Kevin Matthew Musser, 42, and Robert Kevin Shallcross, 50, were arrested after police searched their home in the 100 block of Main St. Police began an investigation two months ago after receiving a tip, authorities said.

While searching the home, officers found marijuana, crack cocaine, drug paraphernalia and a breathing apparatus, as well as several suitcases filled with tubes, beakers, funnels, burner plates and bottles, police said in a news release. Police accused the three of using the equipment as a "mobile methamphetamine lab."

All were charged with possession of marijuana and cocaine, and the unlawful manufacturing of methamphetamine, the news release said. Shallcross had outstanding warrants in Nevada and Kansas relating to methamphetamine, county police said. He also had outstanding warrants in Maryland.

The suspected lab is the second found in the county in the past three months. In August, authorities arrested Brian Kauffmann, 33, of the 300 block of Pertch Road in Severna Park and accused him of manufacturing the drug in his garage.
