There is a new drug menace in your neighborhood. It’s called methamphetamines, an illegal and very addictive drug. It is made in illegal laboratories hurriedly set up in bathrooms, basements, garages and many other places in and around a residence. Many neighborhoods, just like yours, have already seen these makeshift laboratories. An explosion in one neighborhood filled the air with toxic chemicals.
Methamphetamine is made with common household products sold in stores throughout your city.
Used as designed, these household products are generally safe. Mixed together, as they are to make methamphetamine, they can become explosive and/or give off toxic fumes that attach mucous membranes, skin, eyes, and the respiratory tract. They can even kill. Innocent people, including children, have died when methamphetamine labs blew up.
There are certain things that you as a private citizen can do to help stop methamphetamines manufacturing in your neighborhood. Drug dealers and methamphetamine manufactures have common habits which are easily observed by the average citizen. The list below details some of these common habits. If you recognize any of these, place contact your local police or sheriff’s department.
Alone, any of these activities or signs may not mean that drug dealing or methamphetamine manufacturing is occurring. However, some or several of them happening together may indicate a problem.
If you locate any of these items in large numbers, suspect a Methamphetamine Laboratory, or a Methamphetamine Laboratory disposal area, please contact the Law Enforcement Center immediately at: (507) 238-4481.
Do not handle these items as they could be flammable, explosive, and hazardous to your health.
