Comments Off on Backpack dropped off at West Branch High School in Beloit contained a mobile Methamphetamine lab

BELOIT, Ohio (WKBN) – A backpack, thought to be that of student who may have lost it, was brought to West Branch High School, but it contained nothing a student would need for class.

The book bag was dropped off at the school Monday by a person who said they found it by the railroad tracks near the fire station. The person thought it may belong to a student.

School officials opened the bag to determine who it may belong to and found items that looked “suspicious” and realized it was not a school book bag.

An officer who was working at the high school took the bag outside to examine its contents and found several items used for the manufacture of methamphetamine.

Drug Enforcement agents from Salem and Portage counties were called to the scene and confiscated the items.

The investigation is ongoing. No arrests have been made.
