NEWPORT, Va., April 2 (UPI) -- No arrests had been made in the investigation into a suspected meth lab found in a Christopher Newport University dormitory in Virginia, officials said Monday.

Campus police Chief Jeffrey Brown issued a memo saying the investigation was ongoing but provided no new details, the Newport News Daily Press reported.

The suspected meth lab was discovered Friday, prompting police to evacuate Wilson residence hall, Newport News (Va.) Daily Press reported.

Police confiscated items from the scene and took them to a lab in Norfolk for additional analysis, CNU spokeswoman Lori Jacobs said in an e-mail Saturday.

Brown had declined Friday to say how authorities were notified or what and how much evidence authorities recovered from the dorm for upperclassmen, located in CNU Village across a street from the university's main campus.
