Neighbor's Tip Leads to Meth Arrests in Douglas County

By  | 

A neighbor's tip led to the arrest of two men suspected of running a methamphetamine lab in the small Douglas County community of Gordon.

The men, ages 38 and 39, were arrested on suspicion of possessing paraphernalia to use to make the illegal drug. The younger man also could face a charge of storing a key chemical for making meth in an unauthorized container.

A sheriff's report says a neighbor of one of the men saw the two driving near his property last weekend and then found a discarded box with what looked parts of a meth lab, so he called the sheriff's department.

Deputies assisted by Superior police and state drug agents went to the 38-year-old man's property later with a search warrant, resulting in the arrests.
