DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (WFTV) -- A tip about possible drug activity at a home near Daytona Beach led Volusia County Sheriff's deputies to an active methamphetamine lab late Wednesday night, authorities said.

Allyson Soine, 28, and Dominick Lasasso, 40, were arrested as members of the Clandestine Methamphetamine Laboratory Response Team cleared the dangerous chemicals from the garage, officials said.

The tipster told authorities that there were people in the garage of a home on Carmen Avenue cooking methamphetamine.

Deputies said they arrived at the home and asked whether they could search it. The homeowner denied that there was drug activity in the house and allowed the deputies inside, officials said.

However, when deputies entered the garage, they found items and chemicals commonly associated with meth labs, officials said.

Deputies said they called the response team, which cleaned up 99 grams of meth oil, along with various bottles, chemicals and drug paraphernalia. Authorities said the oil is an unrefined version of the finished product and sells for about $100 a gram.

Soine and Lasasso were charged with trafficking methamphetamine and manufacture of methamphetamine, deputies said. Authorities said they told deputies they were just visiting the home.
