DeKalb County authorities find meth lab dump spot

A DeKalb County, Ala., homeowner led authorities to a spot on his property where several bottles that appeared to be one-pot meth labs had been dumped.

DeKalb County’s Drug Task Force agents removed 19 one-pot cook labs from around the property along with other items used to make meth, said Sheriff Jimmy Harris in a news release.

All the items were removed from the property and disposed of without calling a special hazardous materials personnel, Harris said.

No arrests have been made, but the property owner is not a suspect in the investigation, Harris said. The investigation will continue.

This makes 22 one-pot labs found in the county in two days, authorities said.
