State Police: Number Of Meth Labs On The Rise In New York
NEW YORK(AP) — New York State Police say they have been responding to more reports of clandestine methamphetamine labs.
State police say they found more than 100 meth labs last year, double the number the year before.
So far in 2013, troopers have been called to 93 clandestine labs or incidents and they’re looking for the public’s help in dealing with the growing problem.
Trooper Jennifer Fleishman, a state police spokeswoman, says police are typically finding “one-pot meth labs,” unlike the larger-scale operations depicted on the cable television show “Breaking Bad.”
