ENDICOTT, N.Y. -

The Endicott Police Department is currently investigating a possible meth lab at 1902 Monroe St., in the Village of Endicott. 

Endicott Police said they responded to the residence at approximately 4:30 a.m., due to a report of an unresponsive male.  Police say they discovered what are believed to be the components of a "one-pot" meth lab.

On location Thursday, Endicott Police Chief Patrick Garey said authorities assisted the victim, secured the scene, and requested the New York Sate Police Contaminated Crime Scene Emergency Response Team. 

"Their function here is to help us mitigate the meth lab, and ensure it's safe, so we can continue processing the scene," said Garey.

The Endicott Fire Department and the Union Volunteer Emergency Squad also assisted on scene.

On Thursday, Chief Garey said it was too early to say if any arrests, or charges, would be made. 

The male has not yet been identified, and his current condition has not yet been disclosed. Police said the investigation is ongoing and said they will release further details when it is complete.

Monroe St. between Jackson and Arthur Avenues was temporarily closed Thursday, but has been reopened.
