PA: Man allegedly operating attic meth lab in home with children

An Everett man accused of running a methamephetamine lab in the attic of his Everett home, where his children also reside, is incarcerated on multiple charges stemming from the allegations.

Michael Golembeski, 38, is facing a second-degree felony count of operating a meth lab and illegal dumping of waste; two ungraded felony counts related to drug manufacturing, two third-degree felony counts of manufacturing methamphetamine with a child present and another for risking catastrophe; two ungraded misdemeanors related to the lab, and another for possession of drug paraphernalia; and two first degree misdemeanors for endangering the welfare of a child.

He is incarcerated on $150,000 monetary bail.

Police were dispatched to the Spring Street residence, along with members of Children and Youth Services, after a ChildLine report of a possible meth lab in the home. The children were home with a caregiver, who allowed authorities into the residence.

In the attic, police reports indicate officers opened a closed door, revealing multiple empty medicine blister packs, AA batteries that were both cut up and whole, disposable cold packs, a bottle of drain opener, and two soda bottles with a white, powder-like substance inside.

The state police’s clandestine response team was dispatched to the residence, where they secured the items that they identified as being used in the manufacture of methamphetamine.

In the meantime, Golembeski’s wife returned to the residence, and allegedly told police that the items all belonged to her husband. In a written statement, police said she indicated that bats in the attic prevented her and her children from entering the area.

A preliminary hearing on the case is scheduled for 9 a.m. Jan. 24.
