SUNSET HILLS, Mo. (KSDK) - Police are investigating an apparent meth lab at the Econo Lodge on 3730 Lindbergh Blvd. At least one person is in custody.

Authorities first discovered the lab at around midnight Thursday. Officers were initially responding to a domestic disturbance when they caught a whiff of meth from one room. 

One officer who entered the room was overcome by the fumes, and was briefly hospitalized.

Mehlville Fire Protection District responded, and say the perpetrators were attempting to cook meth in the room's microwave. This led authorities to evacuate the hotel at approximately 1 a.m. Everyone was let back in at 2:30 a.m.

No additional information was immediately available.
