PEN ARGYL, Pa. -

Police in Northampton County say they've taken down what they believe is a meth lab.

Wednesday afternoon units raided a home in the 200 block of George Street in Pen Argyl.

Officials say the home belonged to 38-year-old Kyle Fogel.

Fogel has been arrested and charged with manufacturing a controlled substance, risking a catastrophe and related charges.

Police say they were tipped off about Fogel's activity after someone reported that a person bought 50 pounds of ammonium sulfate from the Northampton Farm Bureau in Tatamy.
