A Kansas drug enforcement unit checking a report of a suspected meth lab found something quite different.

Reno County investigators went to a Hutchinson apartment Tuesday where neighbors complained of a strong odor.

But instead of a meth lab, the suspicious contraption turned out to be a fuel cell — in simple terms, a device that converts the chemical energy of a fuel and an oxidant into electrical energy.

The man who was making the fuel cell was not arrested. But officers on the scene did take in another person on suspicion of theft.
