I thought meth labs were only in Columbia County according to many of the posters on here.

I'm also shocked about the AREA, I usually associated meth labs in trailer parks. Not to mention other things I associated with them. Maybe with more info I will become more educated.

Unpublished

No pic, no long list of unrelated charges, no mention of a charge of drug use near a school zone, no mention of the 100 ft or 1000 ft charge of selling dope within a school zone, and most importantly, review what the "narcotics officer" said and what the actual charges are: This can only mean ONE thing and U know what it is...

Way to go MOM!!! At your house? You don't smell it or see the people coming or going???? What about...take a look at your SON....he was crying for help and all you did was LOOK THE OTHER WAY....SHAME ON YOU. Now you must live with helping to put your son behind bars...I'm praying for you. NO, we are not responsible for what they do as an adult..BUT IN YOUR HOME...IN YOUR BACK YARD!! I know this man and his family very, very, very well and I tell you this....the mother always overlooked his "drug problem" and the shed...less than a couple of feet from the home. I wonder does the Grandmother still live in front of them???? Thank you Lord for keeping the neighbors safe, how DANGEROUS!!! Lord please PLEASE help this family....praying for all of you. By the way...Ken Nimmons may not be able to help this time :(

I know the person arrested.

I know the person arrested. He was a good teenager. Damn peer pressure. I lived down the street from him. Came from a good family and couldn't ask for a better buddy. When you find a goldmine in something, it's hard to turn your back to it. If you are a kid and someone tells you that you can make multitudes of money.... well what are you going to do?

It has been around for awhile. Heck,look at Don Henley's song 'smugglers blues'. Easy money is easy money. Just because you have principle's doesn't mean everybody has principle's.
