Nabbed

Randy Lambreghts, a graduate student at Dartmouth College, was arrested and charged with attempted manufacture of methamphetamines, reports the Union Leader. Gawker notes that Lambreghts, a Belgian citizen, uses classical genetics and next-generation sequencing approaches to study the Neurospora circadian clock. The Union Leader says that police responded to a medical call at Lambreghts' apartment earlier in the day and saw suspicious items that led them to suspect that drugs were being manufactured there.
