Auburn police arrested a man suspected of manufacturing meth in the early hours on Christmas Eve. Auburn Police responded to a home in the West Edge mobile home park to investigate a drug tip. When they got there, they met up with Jeffery Hamilton and said they smelled a strong chemical odor coming from his person. Police say they later found meth making materials in Hamilton’s coat pockets. Additional evidence of meth manufacturing and use was allegedly found inside the home. Charges against the suspect are pending.
