SUNSET HILLS, Mo. (AP) — A suspect is jailed and a police officer injured after a suspected methamphetamine lab bust in St. Louis County.

Police were called to a room at the Econo Lodge Inn in Sunset Hills early Thursday. Officers saw smoke coming from the room and smelled a chemical odor.

As an officer entered the room he was overcome by fumes. He was hospitalized briefly.

An investigation continues and charges have not been filed.
