CLARE COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -
Over the last two weeks, Clare County Sheriff's deputies have been called to investigate the discovery of two mobile meth labs, and that has the sheriff asking the public to be aware if they stumble upon meth making materials in the woods.
On April 27, the Clare County Sheriff department responded to the area of Adams Road near Harrison Avenue in Surry Township for a suspicious activity complaint.
Once on scene, deputies determined that someone had dumped several mobile meth labs out in the ditch. Detectives said 25 mobile one-pot meth labs were found in the ditch and the area was cleaned up with the assistance from BAYANET's Meth response team and the Clare County Sheriff Department Meth responder.
Then on May 5, detectives from Clare County received a call of a suspicious bottle in the woods on Harrison Avenue near Washington Road in Grant Township.
Detectives were able to identify the bottle as a mobile meth lab that was still in the process of working. Again BAYANET was called in and the site was cleaned up.
Clare County Sheriff John Wilson would like to remind everyone who is out walking this summer -- if you see a plastic bottle that looks suspicious, that has a white residue in the bottle that looks like white crystals or a whitish gray solid in the bottle, leave the bottle alone and call police.
Wilson said it is possible for these mobile meth labs to reactivate the chemicals, thus making them dangerous to your health.
