The 19-year-old man was taken to hospital and then later arrested and charged for manufacturing a controlled drug in a room at one of the residences.
Police said the room was being used as a clandestine laboratory. Investigators recovered drug related paraphernalia from the scene such as quantities of chemicals as well as a notebook with the chemical formula for MDMA.
The man will face the ACT Magistrates Court today (November 1).
Police are urging anyone who may have any information to call 1800 333000, or report via the Crime Stoppers ACT website using reference number 6325091.
