Seven people were arrested Wednesday after police searched a Harlem-area home and found a methamphetamine lab.

After a month-long investigation, Columbia County Sheriff’s Office narcotics investigators searched a home on the 3800 block of Gordon Highway at about 5 p.m. The people involved were selling and making methamphetamine in the home, sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris said.

Investigators found products used to make meth inside one of the rooms. The products were secure and removed safely. Prescription drugs and marijuana also were seized.
