IT is believed police are investigating a possible drug lab at 61 Toolooa St.

A neighbour said he didn't hear a thing until he saw a police car turn up half an hour ago.

He hadn't noticed anything suspicious from the residents who live at the apartment.

Another neighbour said she heard shouting between 10.30 and 11pm last night.

But she wasn't certain it was coming from the same apartment.

There is a police officer inside the apartment and police tape has been placed at the entrance of the apartment.

We will have more information after 10am.
