An active methamphetamine lab – which law enforcement officers called “highly volatile” – was discovered Wednesday morning at a Creek Road residence, according to the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office.

The occupant of a house trailer, Stephen L. Doan, 26, was initially arrested on an outstanding warrant for parole violation, said Major Brett Prickett, chief detective of the CCSO. Additional charges are pending for the methamphetamine lab.

Doan was incarcerated at the Clinton County Jail.

Prickett said the one-pot methamphetamine lab was cooking when deputies arrived on the scene.

Three fire trucks – two from Clinton-Warren and another from Chester Township – stood by at the scene as a precautionary measure.

Creek Road was closed to traffic from U.S. 22 to George Road, near Clarksville. Employees from the Clinton County Highway Department provided traffic control.

A neutralization team from the Bureau of Criminal Identification & Investigation (BCI) was called to the scene to remove the active lab, Prickett said. Law officers and the BCI neutralization team remained at the scene late Wednesday afternoon, Prickett said.

    Don’t you hate it when that happens? And the suspect does NOT look suspicious at all!
