Meth Lab home clues that you should know

Meth labs can be set up just about anywhere. They’ve been found in cars, trailers, homes, hotel rooms, just about anywhere the meth cook can find a heat source. When you’re shopping for a new home or looking for a new apartment, be on the alert for signs of a meth lab. Here are some signs that you should look for:

  • Smells similar to fingernail polish, cat urine, or ammonia
  • Propane tanks with blued fittings
  • Trash that contains packages of cold medicines containing cold medicines containing ephedrine / pseudoephedrine, drain cleaner and antifreeze bottles, denatured alcohol, coffee filters stained red, lantern fuel. Bottles or jars with glass tubing
  • Rust colored stains on kitchen, bath fixtures, rugs, or floors.
  • Stained soil or dead vegetation.
  • Bottles or jars with glass tubing.
