A potentially dangerous methamphetamine lab in Bryan was raided by police.

The location is less than a mile away from Haswell Memorial Park and Fannin Elementary School.
That makes the neighborhood a drug free zone and the charges much more serious.

"Feel a little better, knowing that they ain't there,." said Edward Yeomans, a Bryan resident.

Yeomans is talking about his three next door neighbors, who at the house on 1006 Burt Street in Bryan.

"This is a pretty close neighborhood. I don't know everyone's names, but I do know them by face, I know where they live and every now and then we'll be walking down the road and stop and talk," Yeomans said.

Bryan police and several other task forces got a tip this location was a meth lab.

37 year-old Randolph Miller, 29 year-old Jessica Najvar and Reynaldo Rios Jr, who is 26, are being held for possession of a controlled substance in a drug free zone.
Rios is also facing several other charges including tampering with evidence and evading arrest.

Yeomans said, "I seen the red lights through my bedroom window and I came out here and saw all the cop cars, swat and all that."

A special DPS investigations group came into town from Houston to clear out and test the hazardous chemicals found inside, some did test positive for methamphetamines.

"Yeah, there were people coming and going all the time, but it was quiet," Yeomans said.

He has lived on this street for 14 years and says he's happy he and his neighbors are no longer breathing in dangerous chemicals.

Yeomans added, "I don't like it next door and I'm glad it's gone."

All the suspects arrested have pretty lengthy criminal histories.

Rios has four assault charges.
Miller has five previous drug possession arrests, theft and engaging in organized criminal activity.
Najvar has three drug possession charges, plus evading arrest.

All the suspects remain in the Brazos County Jail.
