Nearly 200 Locations In Jackson and Scott Counties
The Indiana State Police have unveiled a new link on the state’s methamphetamine website that lists properties that have previously been identified by law enforcement as the location of a clandestine meth lab.
The site provides Hoosiers with the date of seizure, county, street address, type of lab and location of the lab on the property listed.
The site lists the locations of 110 meth lab sites in Jackson County including several in Crothersville and 75 in Scott County. The listing began in 2007 and the most recent meth lab location listed was discovered was last month.
In addition, labs seized in vehicles will have the vehicle identification number listed if the lab was seized after December 31, 2012.
Only labs that have been reported to the Indiana State Police either through an ISP criminal incident report or via EPIC 143 report submission by another police agency will be listed on the website.
To visit the website go to www.meth.in.gov then click on the link Clan Lab Addresses. The list is searchable by date, county, and location.
The address lists have specific timelines and delisting requirements under legislation that created the listing. If the address fits within the statutory timelines, users will be able to download the ISP Occurrence Report and the Indiana Department of Environmental Management’s Certificate of Illegal Drug Lab Cleanup submitted for a particular property.
If it has been disclosed through a real estate transaction that a clan lab was on the property for sale but it is not listed on the website, users should contact the ISP Meth Suppression Section toll-free at 1-877-MSS-METH. ISP can determine if the property was delisted after cleanup or if a lab was never reported to the Indiana State Police for that location. Occurrence Reports will be available from ISP and Cleanup Certificates will still be available from IDEM for those delisted properties.
“This project has been over a year in the making, and we are pleased that legislators Representative Wendy McNamara and Senator Randy Head, who authored the bill, worked with us and the other entities involved to pass this legislation that protects Hoosiers from the dangers posed by meth lab contamination.” said ISP Meth Suppression Commander F/Sgt. Niki Crawford.
