CINCINNATI -- Authorities found a meth lab when they went to arrest a convicted sex offender on felony warrants, according to the U.S. Marshals Service.

Richard C. Saylor, 54, was convicted of first-degree sexual abuse in Kentucky involving a young girl, the Marshals Service said. He was wanted in Hamilton County on felony warrants involving a sex offense registration charge and probation violation.

When officials with the Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team served the warrants Friday on Robertson Avenue, they found an active meth lab and drug paraphernalia inside the residence where Saylor was living, according to the Marshals Service.

The Cincinnati Police Department's specialize meth team removed the hazardous chemicals and disassembled the lab.

Saylor remained at the Hamilton County Justice Center on Friday night.
