MAKING METH – THE SHAKE AND BAKE WAY

The new formula for manufacturing meth:  a two-liter bottle, a handful of cold pills and some noxious chemicals.  Shake the bottle and you have just produced the world’s most dangerous and addictive drug.

Just a few years ago making meth required an elaborate lab containing filthy containers simmering over open flames, cans of flammable liquids and hundreds of pills.  This process gave off an odor, sparked explosions and was so hard to conceal that manufacturers often “cooked” their drugs in rural areas.

Now drug users are making their own meth in small batches using a faster, cheaper and much simpler method with ingredients that can be carried in a backpack and mixed on the run.  This method is easy for the user to make yet very dangerous for anyone in the surrounding area.

What can we as communities do to help stop this dangerous production of meth?   Make Pseudoephedrine a prescription only drug and take METH OFF OUR STREETS!

Community involvement + good detective work= crime solved

Last week MCSO deputies arrested two adults and one juvenile for Robbery 1st.  The suspects were arrested within an hour of the robbery.  The case was solved so quickly because of a concerned citizen who saw two of the suspects running away and was able to give us a very detailed description of the car.  We took that information and dispatched it to all of our patrol units as well as the Mobile Police Department.   MCSO Patrol units saw the vehicle at a Circle K on Moffett Road and arrested the driver.  Surveillance camera’s at a local store identified the other two involved in the crime.

 

This crime was solved in a timely manner because of three reasons; 1. the communication from a citizen. 2.  Communication from MCSO dispatch center. 3. Good detective work.  Our Deputies were able to get three potentially dangerous criminals off the streets and behind bars where they belong.

 

Always remember call the proper authority and never take matters into your own hands.  This is what we do all day, everyday and we consider it our Honor to Serve and Protect the citizens of Mobile County.
