ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Albany Dougherty Drug Agents say the Meth lab found inside an Albany motel room last night was small, but still extremely dangerous.

Agents got a tip that led them to room 313 at the Knight's Inn on Schley Avenue, which they and GBI Agents raided about 8PM. Inside they found a full methamphetamine making center, including acids and dangerous chemicals for making Meth. Agents evacuated the motel, while they removed the Meth lab.

That led them to the man renting the room, 37-year-old James Zeechini, who was charged with manufacturing and possession of methamphetamine.

"It was an inactive lab at this point, but because he had just got through cooking in the last few days. So it was just a matter of time before he had another cook going. But there was all the chemicals, all the ingredients to have a Meth lab," said A.D.D.U. Commander Maj. Derrell Smith.

Zeechini is being held in the Dougherty County Jail. He is also charged with cruelty to animals. Agents found a small pit bull mix in the room. They had the dog checked and detoxed, and should be fine.
