An Abington man was arraigned Thursday on a list of charges stemming from an alleged drug lab he was running out of his home.

Law enforcement raided a home at 91 Green Street home on Wednesday and arrested 38-year-old Robert Sampson. Police say he was producing methamphetamine and growing hallucinogenic mushrooms. They say they also found the new narcotic known as “bath salts”.

Abington Police Chief David Majenski said that as well as drug and child endangerment charges, they are also charging Sampson with attempted manslaughter.

“Because of the dangerousness of these substances… especially the crystal meth–it’s is a substance that could potentially kill somebody. To us, that’s a manslaughter charge,” said Majenski.

Sampson’s partner, Krysty, the mother of the couple’s two children, is also expected to be summonsed to court on drug and child endangerment charges. A third party, from Abington, who was inside the house at the time of the raid is also expected to be summonsed to court on drug charges.
