Comments Off on Portable Methamphetamine Lab Blows Up In Suspect’s Pants

New crystal meth drug is more dangerous to manufacture

A routine traffic stop became an explosive situation early Saturday morning  when a portable meth lab bottle detonated in a suspect’s pants according  to law enforcement.

An Oklahoma state trooper stopped an SUV for speeding in Okmulgee County.  When the trooper gave the driver a ticket, he caught a whiff of a chemical  smell. When the trooper attempted to question the passenger about the smell, he  bailed, apparently with meth leaking down his leg.

KOTV, Tulsa reports that the trooper said that “After a  brief struggle it was determined there was an active meth lab in his pants that  burst during the struggle and got all over his body.”

Anyone who watches the television series Cops  knows that you  don’t run from the police. No one was burned, fortunately.

The suspect was arrested on a complaint of manufacture of a controlled and  dangerous substance. The driver wasn’t arrested.

A portable meth lab is also known as a one-pot lab. As the Inquisitr has already reported, the one-pot technique  requires a simple 2-liter bottle, putting the deadly cocktail right into the  brewer’s hands. Says one law enforcement official: “You’re holding a  flame-thrower in your hands.” Also, the method uses less pseudoephedrine than  dated recipes, creates usable drugs in minutes, and is much easier to conceal  and carry, it has become the production method of choice, and about 80% of meth  labs busted by the DEA in 2010 used the technique.

Unlike the sophisticated method used by criminal mastermind Walter White in Breaking Bad, perhaps, this  technique often sends many meth-cooking burn victims to the emergency ward.

Meth and other amphetamine-type stimulants are thought to be the second  most widely used class of illegal drugs in the world
