Cuba meth lab busted - second this year

Cuba police busted an "active" meth lab Tuesday at the Erin Isles Apartments at 3 Bristol Street in the village. Patrolman Jim Galatio said he responded at about 8:45 a.m. Tuesday to the scene. His response, he said, was based on a tip from the community. Cuba police and ambulance and state police worked to safely secure and dispose of the material. Galatio said an arrest is likely. He called the upswing in meth use in the Cuba area a "huge public safety concern." This is the second meth lab raided this year. However, police said heroin use remains the predominant concern for law enforcement. Law enforcement spent about five hours clearing the scene.
