JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

Police said materials used to make amphetamines were found Tuesday afternoon in a home on Ithaca Drive, but no one was home.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said they do have a person they want to question about the materials, but no name was given.

Officers said there was no active manufacturing going on, so there was no dangers to neighbors.  The bomb squad and Jacksonville Fire-Rescue hazardous materials team was at the scene. Officers said it would take a couple of hours to safety remove the materials from the house.

Anyone with information that could help in the narcotics investigation is asked to call Crimestoppers at 866-845-TIPS.
