Hazardous materials crew members remove items Wednesday from a shed in San Antonio that authorities believe was a methamphetamine lab.

SAN ANTONIO — A hazardous materials crew removed items Wednesday from a shed that authorities believe was a methamphetamine lab.

Authorities say Jason Troyer, 34, ran the meth lab in his neighbor's shed at 16181 Jones Loop, off a dirt road near Lake Iola Road. His girlfriend had called authorities because she was "sick" of Troyer cooking meth, said sheriff's spokesman Kevin Doll.

Doll wouldn't say how much meth was found or whether anyone else would be charged.

Troyer, of 16171 Jones Loop, was charged with possession of methamphetamines, controlled substances, marijuana and drug paraphernalia. He is being held at the Pasco County jail in lieu of $7,300 bail.
