THE FIGHT AGAINST ³
³ METHAMPHETAMINE INVOLVES A ³
³ LOT OF LEG ³
³ WORK...LITERALLY. ³
³ ³
³ MOBILE METH LABS ARE ³
³ CAUSING SOME PROBLEMS FOR ³
³ LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT ³
³ AGENTS. ³

³ They're usually ³
³ concealed in tubberware ³
bins, large enough to carry ³
³ the many chemicals used to ³
³ brew the deadly confection ³
³ known as meth. ³
³ And Bay County Sheriff's Officials say these mobile ³
³ labs are making their job ³
of cracking down on this ³
dangerous drug harder, but ³
³ not impossible. ³
³
³ In a meth bust last night ³
³ at the border of Washington ³
³ and Bay Counties Sheriff's ³
³ Deputies found about ³
³ 8-thousand grams of meth ³
³ oil, enough to make ³
³ 800-thousand dollars worth ³
³ of Methamphetamine. ³
³ In this case, ³
³ authorities say the suspect ³
³ made the meth oil using two ³
³ different labs. ³
And they weren't the ³
typical meth labs we've seen in recent busts. ³
³ They were small enough to ³
³ fit in a plastic tubberware ³
tub. ³
³
³ "Meth made with homemade chemicals are very easy to purchase, ³
³ contain, and then move it ³
³ to the woods to cook or ³
³ someone else's home, or ³
³ even a boat," Ruth Sasser, Bay County Sheriff's Spokewoman says. ³
³
³ These mobile labs ³
³ may make it easier for drug ³
³ makers to cross county lines ³
³ with meth, but Sasser says ³
³ the network of law ³
³ enforcement agencies working ³
³ together on cracking down on this problem will ensure ³
³ that sooner or later they'll ³
³ be found and prosecuted.
