Vancouver police officers and firemen investigated a Coal Harbour apartment Saturday morning after a building employee discovered a potential drug lab.

Officers received the call at around 8 a.m. and wore protective equipment before entering the unit on 1288 West Georgia St. “out of an abundance of caution,” according to a press release.

Traffic on West Georgia was blocked off for a period of time Saturday due to the investigation.
