(CONNERSVILLE) - Indiana State Police are urging elderly residents to become familiar with the dangers of methamphetamine labs and how to spot them in their neighborhoods as law enforcement officials battle the drug's spread.

Indiana police broke up more than 1,400 meth labs in 2012. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration says that's the third-highest number in the nation.

State police Sgt. John Bowling tells the News-Examiner it's important for older residents to be familiar with what the drug looks like and smells like.

He told a group gathered recently at the Fayette Senior Center recently that many elderly residents have been taken advantage of by grandchildren and other relatives making the drug.
