Meth Lab Dump Site Disposed Of
Officials describe it as a "clandestine meth lab dump site." Putnam County sheriff's Deputy Steven Elrod says he was dispatched last week to Hilham Highway in the area of the Overton County line after someone driving down that highway called the department to report seeing some bottles and trash along the side of the road. Upon arrival, Elrod says he found a white trash bag that had broken open. He says the trash contained several items commonly used in meth production -- including hydrogen peroxide, lighter fluid, coffee filters, plastic tubing...and a beach ball. The deputy says all of the items were packaged and disposed of.
