Police in the District have identified the three men suspected of setting up a drug lab on the campus of Georgetown University.

Investigators say two of the men, Charles Smith and John Romano, are students at Georgetown University. The third man, John Perrone, is described by police as a visitor.

A D.C. Police spokesperson says investigators found a dimethyl tryptamine (DMT) lab filled with chemicals capable of creating a hallucinogenic drug.

First responders to the sight at Harbin Hall Saturday morning originally thought the the chemical smell reported was coming from a methamphetamine lab.

All three face charges of manufacturing a controlled substance. They're scheduled to be arraigned later today.
