Drug labs are quite often found in residential areas including, rented premises, houses, apartments/units, hotel and motel rooms, garages, rural properties and regional areas and self-storage units.

Most drug labs detected in Queensland are small and therefore highly portable. For this reason, laboratories can also be located inside vehicles including trucks, caravans, boats, trailers and cars.

A drug lab can range from improvised items including a few saucepans and glass jars to an elaborate system of laboratory glassware.

Drug labs can also include a pill press, tablet press or encapsulator.
