ROUSES POINT, N.Y. -
A mobile meth lab was stopped in its tracks late last night. New York State Police pulled someone over, and say they noticed drugs being cooked in the back seat!
Pretty unbelievable, but with the growing drug problem, police are seeing more and more of this every day.
17 meth labs were discovered in Clinton County last year. This was the first bust of 2013.
And it's not a sophisticated set up like you may be thinking. For many people, they might not even know they're looking at a meth lab.
90 minutes. Two liter soda bottles, plastic tubing and some household ingredients.
"Coleman fuel, some Drano, some lye," Lieutenant Brent Davison said.
That and a couple more ingredients are all it takes to make a batch of meth, and Police say because the highly addictive drug is easy to make, we're seeing more of it... like they say they found in the back seat of 27 year old Ryan Tetreault's Hyundai.
"A lot of people are nervous when things like this happen," Calvin Coulombe said, who lives nearby.
As I got to Chapman Street in Rouses Point Tuesday, the mobile meth lab was being hauled away. Police say when they pulled Tetreault over for not having a license plate light and failing to signal, they noticed the active meth lab on the back seat.
"That kinda surprised me that they were doing it in the car," Coulombe said.
I talked with several neighbors who were certainly surprised to hear a meth lab was rolling down their street, but many of them know just how big of a problem this drug is in this area.
"I don't expect that trend to change unfortunately," Lt. Davison said.
One neighbor shared pictures she snapped. She said police were there for about 12 hours. A hazmat team was called in, set up a table and began testing the evidence. Police don't think Tetreault was selling meth, simply making the drug for personal use. Police say there's one less addict off the streets, but know there are many more cases to crack.
Police are looking into a computer database that would keep track of who's buying Sudafed, one of the main ingredients needed to make meth, or making the cold medicine a prescription-only medication. Tetreault was arrested and charged and is being held at the Clinton County Jail.
