Manchester Police apprehended a suspect on Aug. 1 who has now been charged with illegal manufacturing of methamphetamine and possession of methamphetamine according to a press release from the department.

Officer Hayes was on bike patrol and ordered Walls to stop. At that time according to the release, Walls dropped his bike and took off running and was apprehended after a short pursuit by Officer Jason Mallott and K-9 Elko.

Officers returned to the scene where Walls dropped his bicycle and they discovered a plastic bag hanging on the bicycle with a plastic bottle that contained an active methamphetamine lab according to to the release. The area was sealed off to a HAZMAT situation and the Bureau of Criminal Investigations was called in to safely remove the lab.

Walls was treated at the scene for injuries received from the K-9 apprehension and was taken into custody and he currently sits in the Adams County Jail.
