Moultrie, GA (WALB) –  After being closed for four months, Moultrie's crime lab has reopened on a limited basis. 

It's welcome news for law enforcement agencies in more than 20 counties across southwest Georgia who can now drop off evidence at the lab. 

The lab will then send it to other labs for processing, but it saves law enforcement from driving to Macon and Atlanta.

Before the lab is fully operational, a $400,000 bond will be used to pay for air conditioning and roof repairs.

The state must also replace equipment that was sent to other labs.

Renovations are not likely to be completed until early 2011.
