Largest Meth Dumping Site In Louisville History Uncovered

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Louisville Metro Police say they have
uncovered the largest methamphetamine lab dumping site ever found
in the city.

Police say they found more than 200 used meth labs along a
quarter-mile stretch of a rural two-lane road in southwestern
Jefferson County.

A man passing through the area noticed the materials Wednesday
and called authorities.

A certified contractor in meth cleanup by the U.S. Drug
Enforcement Agency was called to remove the hazardous materials.

Police are searching for those responsible for the site.

Authorities say they are testing a nearby water supply to make
sure it has not been contaminated with any chemicals.

    Keep picking on the potheads while you let these lowlife meth addicts out of jail so they can keep right on robbing people to pay for their habit. They will keep making the stuff as long as there are no consequences.
