ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Police responding to a 911 call found an active methamphetamine lab in an Anchorage motel room.

Police said they were called to the Royal Suite Lodge about 4 a.m. Monday, KTUU in Anchorage reported. Police arrested 32-year-old Monica Miller for misconduct involving a controlled substance and two counts of possessing a weapon during a drug offense.

According to charging documents, police found an assault rifle and a loaded handgun in the suite adjacent to Miller's. Police also arrested a man on an outstanding felony warrant but had not released his name.

The two apparently checked into the motel on Sunday.

Police have not been able to verify who made the 911 call, then immediately hung up.

Police said officers arrived at suite 404 and one of the two answered the door and said everything was fine. But on 911 calls, officers must make sure no one is hurt, so they entered the room and saw the suspected drugs cooking on a hotplate.
