    Three individuals running a meth lab in Vista were arrested Wednesday on drug charges.

    Michael Lynn Peterson, 47, ran the lab in his home at 443 Sunset Drive. Two women at the house were also arrested, according to an article in the North County Times.

    Law enforcement officials found the small meth production lab at 10 p.m. Wednesday, U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration spokesperson Amy Roderick told the North County Times.

    Federal and local narcotics authorities found approximately 2 grams of methamphetamine and several more ounces being “cooked” in the house, Roderick said.

    A Hazardous Materials crew was sent to clean the house and dispose of the meth.

    The two women arrested include Michelle Marie Cline, 33, Oceanside, for possession of methamphetamine and Lori Ann Kohl, 42, of Vista, for her status as a parolee at large.
