Authorities believe the home, where about 100 kg of meth was found, was used as a conversion lab to turn raw methamphetamine into refined crystal meth.

LIBERTY COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) -- Overnight, the Liberty County Sheriff's Office conducted what they say could be the largest meth bust ever in the county.

Swarms of law enforcement and federal agents in hazmat suits were seen outside a home on County Road 2192 off FM-787.
Deputies executed a search warrant at the home Tuesday night after receiving information that there were possibly drugs in the home.

Inside, deputies found what they estimate to be well over $500,000 worth of crystal meth.

Authorities believe the home was being used as a conversion lab to turn raw methamphetamine into refined crystal meth.

Someone from the Liberty County Sheriff's Office, who can't be identified, says they called in HPD hazmat to help because it wasn't safe.

"Due to the nature of it, the type of compound that is was, in the process of being made, we had to call in hazmat to come remove it," he said. "We had to call in HPD's group."

No one was home when the house was raided, deputies said. The home has no visible street address or mailbox.

Texas Department of Public Safety and Houston police officials assisted in securing the drugs.

Officials estimate the meth weighs at least 100 kg.

It is not clear who is behind all of this or who will be charged. Authorities are continuing to investigate.
