FELTON, Del. -

Delaware State Police are looking for a man wanted for allegedly making meth inside his own mother's home.

Police say 32-year-old John Bradley is accused of manufacturing methamphetamine inside a home on the 200 block of East High Street in Felton.

According to police, Felton's 56-year-old mother was collecting laundry Sunday morning when she located a rag sticking out of a cooler in her son's bedroom. Police say when she pulled the rag from the cooler, she was overcome by fumes and took the cooler outside onto her porch.

Members of the Delaware State Police Kent County Drug Unit and the DNREC say they discovered component mixtures of the manufacturing stages of meth, along with key ingredients used in making the drug.

The area around the home was closed for two hours Sunday morning as the materials were removed from the home.
