NORCROSS, Ga. (AP) -- Gwinnett County Sheriff's officials say members of the department's SWAT team were decontaminated after being exposed to methamphetamine during a lab bust.<br />
Sheriff's spokeswoman Shannon Volkodav told local media outlets that authorities were helping the Department of Homeland Security execute a search warrant at a home in Norcross Thursday, and were exposed to the drug while taking a suspect into custody.<br />
Volkodav says the exposure caused skin and eye irritation to eight officers who were on the scene.<br />
Authorities set up a tent outside the Gwinnett Medical Center and called a hazardous materials team in for assistance.
