Here are some signs to look for:
- Chemical odors coming from the house, garbage or a detached building.
- Garbage containing numerous bottles, containers, and materials such as those mentioned earlier in other articles.
- Coffee filters, bed sheets or other material stained from filtering red phosphorus or other chemicals.
- Occupant sets his garbage for pick-up in another neighbor's collection area.
There are actions that "you" as a private citizen can take to ensure methamphetamine manufacturing and drug dealing is not occurring in your neighborhood.
- If there is a life threatening emergency situation - please call 9-1-1
- If you observe unusual activity of a non-emergency nature.. please report your concerns to the Drug Task Force.
What to expect when you call the Drug Task Force:
- Your call will be answered by a recorded message.
- Please state your name, address, telephone number, and pertinent details of the drug activity you are reporting.
Be patient....you will receive a call back from a Drug Task Force member within a week.
NEVER CONFRONT YOUR NEIGHBOR with your suspicions, enter a suspected lab or put yourself in danger of health effects from chemicals.
