And Undersheriff Rick Scott says that individuals who were arrested for having meth labs in the 1990s and early 2000s are starting to get out of prison.Could meth labs make a comeback?
In April, deputies found their first meth lab in the county in nearly three years at a home in the Ocosta area. Scott said deputies arrested a man who had just been released from prison for meth-related activity.
"He was attempting to get back in the business," Scott said. "And there is a concern as more of these kinds of people get out of prison, there could be a slight resurgence in domestic production either to satisfy their own habits or to make money. ...
"Also a driving factor is that Mexican law enforcement has been dismantling the drug cartels, which is making the availability of meth more sporadic," Scott added.
