Albuquerque police blocked off the area near Barelas just north of Bridge for several hours Sunday night for what they thought was a meth lab.

Police had gotten reports of tanks containing an anhydrous substance in the area. Such tanks are often used to cook meth.

It turns out the tank were simply filled with propane.

No other signs of a meth lab were found.
