NORFOLK, Va. - Police are investigating a home after finding paraphernalia consistent with the precursors of manufacturing methamphetamine.

Norfolk Police say they discovered the items when assisting Norfolk Probation and Parole Officers during a service visit on Creamer Road around 10:15 a.m.

Officers evacuated the residence and the Regional Hazmat Team responded to the location.

Neighbors living close to the home were not happy to hear about the discovery.

"It's quite upsetting because there are little kids on the street," says Doyle Street. "There's no room for it here at all."

Two notices are posted on the outside of the home. One of them says it is unsafe or unfit for habitation.

News 3 spoke to a man living inside an RV on the property. He says he knows the family that lived there, but would not comment about the investigation or whether or not he was involved.

"I don't know, I don't want to talk to you about it," he said.

Neighbors say renters moved into the home only a few months ago, including a three-year-old child.

Police say there is no threat to the surrounding residences and community.

The investigation is on-going and no charges have been secured. There is also a pending investigation into the possibility of a neighbor's van being used without her permission.
