An Eden home was subject to three days of police investigation following the discovery of an alleged drug lab on Sunday morning.
Police were called after a distraught young man was seen by golfers at Eden Gardens Country Club and nearby residents at about 11.15am.
After speaking with the 22-year-old man, police attended a Storey Avenue home where they found suspicious equipment and chemicals believed to be used in the manufacture of prohibited substances.
Police established a crime scene, with Fire and Rescue Eden on-site in case of fire, and a drug investigation squad was dispatched from Sydney.
The on-site investigation and dismantling of the clandestine lab continued until Tuesday afternoon.
Police believe they have recovered a quantity of prohibited drug and are analysing the substance along with other chemicals and equipment seized.
No charges have been laid.
Rumours abounded in Eden over the past few days that bodies had found at the scene, but this has been denied by police.
