MEADVILLE – Three Meadville residents were taken into custody by city police in a Monday methamphetamine bust at a local apartment complex.

After questioning a resident in the parking lot, police raided Apartment A in Building 440 of the Fairmont Fairview Housing Complex. All the residents living in that building were evacuated and local first responders were put on standby in case of an explosion. After several hours, the building was deemed safe to reenter.
