Police investigating reports of motor vehicle safety inspection violations stumbled upon a methamphetamine lab at a New Hampshire auto dealership on Wednesday.

New Hampshire State Police went to Auto Alley in Derry around 10 a.m. Wednesday to execute a search warrant at the dealership and inspection station after learning that Auto Alley had been improperly transferring state inspection stickers among vehicles they owned or had sold. 

A search of the property revealed that a number of vehicles offered for sale had fraudulently issued inspection stickers affixed to their windshields.

In addition, while searching the business, state troopers discovered ingredients used to cook methamphetamine. A second warrant was obtained and evidence of drug manufacturing was seized. 

The Drug Enforcement Agency's Clandestine Laboratory team responded to secure the hazardous materials found at the scene.
