Comments Off on Cleanup concerns remain over Methamphetamine house where a Clay County detective was killed nearly 3 years ago

There are new concerns surrounding a former meth house in Middleburg after a neighbor called Action News to investigate whether it’s being cleaned up properly.

Nearly three years ago, a Clay County deputy was killed at a home on Alligator Boulevard while investigating a possible meth lab.middleburg_meth

The home now has a new owner, who is fixing it up to eventually sell it.

One neighbor was concerned after he saw people inside without protective gear. We went to a local expert who says it takes days to properly clean a former meth house.

“These chemicals, they’re very corrosive. What happens, it could really agitate somebody’s physical skin by two, the fumes could really deteriorate your insides if you’re exposed to it in a long amount of time,” said Luis Luquin, general manager for Servpro.

The homeowner said so far, crews have just been removing clutter from inside the house and fixing up the exterior.

He is waiting on test results to come back to see if toxins are present in the home.
