Watch out for soda bottle meth labs!
In a search of an Oconee rental home, on which eviction papers were served, officers found components of making methamphetamine—although the evidence at that Fair Play location indicated no meth lab. A different meth-related problem has been detected in neighboring Stephens County, Georgia. There, the sheriff has issued a warning that residents should be wary of a new kind of miniature meth lab that has made an appearance on the sides of roads. Sheriff Randy Shirley says officers have found discarded bottles used in the production of methamphetamine. He calls it a “one pot” method of making the illegal and dangerous drug. “It’s very volatile,” Shirley said. “It can explode.”
