West Richland Family Gets Trailer Back from Son-In-Law, Finds Meth Lab in it
WEST RICHLAND, Wash.-- A meth lab was cleaned out in West Richland Tuesday. Police and their Meth Lab team cleaned out a portable trailer in the Enterprise Middle School area.
A West Richland police sergeant says the people who live in the house lent the trailer to their then son-in-law, had trouble getting it back, and once they did, it wasn't clean so they hired a company to clean it. The clean-up company then called the police. Sergeant Scott Bravo explains, "As soon as they went into the trailer, they realized there was still remnants of a meth lab insidem, at which time they stopped and called us."
The chemicals used to make meth can be highly toxic, so the Meth Lab team wore protective suits, which gave some neighbors quite a scare.
However, police say no one in the area was in any danger, and the trailer was in a different location when the meth was made.
Police also believe the people in the West Richland house are innocent, but will be investigating their former son-in-law since he was the last one to have the trailer.
