HUDSON, Mass. — Over 100 elderly residents were evacuated from their apartments and two people were arrested as the result of a hazardous materials  incident involving a meth lab in Hudson Sunday night.

The Massachusetts state police bomb squad was called to the Peter’s Grove complex at 11 Lake Street.   The incident was confined to one unit of the large apartment complex, the State Fire Marshal’s office said.

More than Meth: The faces of drug arrests

Hudson police said Ronald Royse, 46, and Joanna Miles, 44, were arrested after trying to cook meth in one of the units.

Elderly residents of the low-income complex could be seen sitting in wheel chairs outside their apartments.

One resident said that she was told she would not be able to get back into her residence until Monday morning.

Because of the large number of elderly residents, Council on Aging vans were called to assist in the evacuation.

Royse and Miles will be charged with possession and manufacturing, police said.
