PITCAIRN, Pa. - A man and woman are facing charges after police found equipment for a suspected drug lab after responding to an overdose Monday night in Pitcairn, officials said.
Officers found the equipment while responding to Second Street, forcing the evacuation of an apartment building. A hazmat team was called.
The lab with hazardous chemicals was found on Allison Ober and David Klein’s back porch, according to a criminal complaint. The equipment was not in use at the time, so the area was deemed safe.

Klein was taken into custody and Ober, who overdosed, was taken to the hospital for treatment, police said.
Drugs, needles and beakers with powder on them were in plain view, the complaint said. The couple’s 4-year-old son was inside the apartment.
Klein told police he liked chemistry and mixing chemicals for fun, the complaint said.
Klein is charged with causing or risking catastrophe, endangering the welfare of a child, and recklessly endangering another person.
