Sheriff’s deputies raided a Houston-area drug lab in northeast Harris County that was making meth doses disguised as ecstasy pills. The lab was located in a strip mall next to a daycare and a church.

So far four men have been arrested in the drug operation, ABC13 reported.

During the raid on the lab, authorities seized about $1 million in meth pills. This action took place shortly after authorities raided an apartment used by the group where they also seized pills, counterfeit money and codeine syrup.

The arrests by Harris County Sheriff’s deputies include 30-year-old Walter Abedego Stewart, 24-year-old Carlos Ernest Castillo Jr., 34-year-old Quennell Glen Stewart and 21-year-old Kevin Barnard Flood.  A fifth man remains on the run.
