Drug lab found in basement of seniors home

A privately-owned seniors residence in Montreal North has lost its operating permit after a meth and ecstasy lab was discovered in the basement.

The building was home to seven senior citizens. They've been sent to live elsewhere.

La Presse reports that one of the owners of the Fleury Street East residence has been arrested. 57-year old Claude Moisan is facing half a dozen charges, including drug production and trafficking.

A second suspect in the case, a 26-year old man, is facing nearly two dozen charges.

Both men are out on bail now.

The case will be back in court in September.
