[ISP] Meth Lab Found; Investigation Continues
Start Date: 2/10/2012
End Date: 2/10/2012
Entry Description

Richmond – Last evening shortly before midnight members of the Indiana State Police Meth Suppression Unit received a tip there was an unattended meth lab in a woods in the area of Flatley and Wayne Roads.  A Meth Suppression Trooper went to the area and found a one pot meth lab, which was dismantled.  The investigation into who left the lab is continuing.

The “One Pot Method” has become the most popular method of manufacturing.  The One Pot cook process is a short cut to the manufacture of meth by combining all necessary ingredients in one reaction vessel, typically a 20 ounce drink bottle, 2 liter bottle or a glass bottle/jar. 

The cook process combines incompatible chemicals that easily cause flash fires or explosions.  It also produces a smaller yet just as potent amount of methamphetamine, which means more meth labs and more trips to stores to buy or steal the products used in the manufacture of meth.

Signs to look for meth manufacturing are a strong ammonia smell, or solvent smell like an auto body shop.  Look for air line type rubber tubing, ether or camp fuel cans, plastic bottles, Pseudoephedrine packages, lithium battery casings, and propane tanks with a blue or green discoloration around the valve. 

Anyone with information about illegal drug use may call the Pendleton Post at 1-800-527-4752, or the Indiana State Police Drug Tip Line at 1-800-453-4756. Tips can be made and kept anonymous.  The Indiana Meth Investigation System or IMIS, can also take tips on meth labs.  Just go to and click on the “Report Suspected Meth Activity” link.

All criminal defendants are to be presumed innocent until, and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
