NEW BERN - Several law enforcement agencies are investigating an alleged meth lab found in a Craven County apartment.

According to New Bern Police, a meth lab was discovered Friday at 3:00 p.m. in an apartment at the Kensington Park apartment complex in New Bern.

One woman was arrested and charged in connection with the lab. Amber Corley, 24, faces multiple charges including possession with intent to sell or deliver meth, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The State Bureau of Investigation was called in and authorities stayed on scene into the early morning hours Saturday.

Corley is in jail under a $275,000 bond. Her first court appearance is set for Monday.

We spoke to neighbors who said they were surprised to hear a meth lab could be in their community.

"I've seen police come out here a few times, but never seen them out here in that big of a number," said neighbor Jehovah Fonville. "They were over there with their vest on and I didn't know what was going on. I feel that it [a meth lab] shouldn't be in this area because there are children,  I mean that's dangerous."

New Bern Police did not report any injuries.
