Meth Lab Dismantled
The Bay County Sheriffs Office Special Investigations Division dismantled a Methamphetamine Lab in Bay County yesterday afternoon, July 22, 2008.
Narcotics officers developed information that led to a search warrant on a residence at 1502 Lighthouse Road, Panama City Beach. Investigators discovered five children living within the home and an active methamphetamine lab in the cooking process in the closet and bathroom adjoining the master bedroom.
The children, ranging in ages from 8 to 14 years of age, were removed by DCF and taken to a local emergency room for medical attention. Dangerous fumes created during the Methamphetamine cooking process were present in the home even after windows were opened. Narcotics officers had to wear protective suits and breathing gear in order to safety dismantle the lab.
Approximately five grams of methamphetamine in powder form were found and over 1000 grams of meth oil were found in the home. Also found was drug paraphernalia and all the glassware and equipment needed to use in an active methamphetamine lab.
