    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.
