Police Warning Hikers Of Meth Trash

Last updated on Monday, April 26, 2010

(BEDFORD, IN) - With spring weather upon us, many residents have began walking, jogging, hunting and bike riding.

As harmless as that sounds, the Indiana State Police are warning of the discovery of trash from a methamphetamine manufacture.

The agency's Meth Suppression Section is reminding citizens that this trash may contain chemicals that are toxic, flammable, corrosive, and acidic.

They say that meth cooks use a variety of containers to manufacture their product, such as a one and a half gallon gas can.

You should also be aware of battery casings, ziploc style bags, empty blister packs, and pop-bottle containers.

If you see trash that may be related to the manufacture of methamphetamine, call 911 or the nearest Indiana State Police Post.
