Remnants of Meth Lab located by Deputies
Sheriff Matt Champlin says that on February 12, 2017, deputies responded to a report from a concerned citizen who had located the discarded remains of a Meth Lab on Keels Rd. in Greenfield Township.
As a Meth Lab Disposal Technician, Sheriff Champlin knows all too well the dangers of these discarded labs. “The containments left over from these, shake and bake labs, are extremely dangerous and harmful,” stated Champlin. “I want our residents to be aware of what they look like and to call us immediately if they run across one, because they have the potential to be very harmful to your health,” commented Champlin.
Champlin also stated that county and state road workers along with public utility workers are especially susceptible to running across these types of discarded labs. Sheriff Champlin wants to remind the public not to touch or disturb a lab if you find one and that you should call the Gallia County 911 Center immediately.
