Port Huron Police Road Patrol Officers were conducting a follow up investigation into a larceny report. They were attempting to locate stolen items when they went to a vacant lot in the 1600 block of Whipple Street at about 11:00 Tuesday night. What they found instead were four one pot method reactionary vessels, along with methamphetamine components and precursors. The St. Clair County Drug Task Force was called to the scene to decontaminate, dismantle and dispose of the lab. There are no suspects at this time.
“We want to send the message once again to everyone; if you see what might even possibly be the remnants of a meth lab, walk away and contact your local police agency or the Drug Task Force,” said Sheriff Tim Donnellon. “The remnants left in these one pot vessels can be very volatile. If the chemicals reactivate, it can cause a chemical fire or explosion.”
This is the 17th methamphetamine related complaint this year the Drug Task Force has responded to.
