WEST PLAINS, Mo.  – Area law enforcement agencies began the weekend rounding up drug suspects and a meth lab. On Friday evening, a West Plains police officer arrested one person after a routine traffic stop ended with more than a speeding ticket. A search of the car stopped on Gibson Street discovered a couple of plastic bags police say contained about 100 grams of meth. The person arrested hasn’t been identified pending the filing of formal charges.

And in Vernon County, sheriff’s deputies acting on a tip found a suspected meth lab on Oak Street in Nevada. A search warrant led to the seizure of what is believed to be multiple bags of meth and scales, which investigators say indicates someone was dealing the drug. The suspected drugs will be sent to the Missouri State Crime lab but Sheriff Jason Mosher said the type of meth found was not the usual crystal meth.

“The crystal meth we have been finding has been coming from places like Kansas City, but the type we found at this residence is home made,” Mosher said.

Mosher also said a strong chemical smell forced officers to wear masks before entering the house. Police do have suspects in the case but have not released any names pending the filing of formal charges.
