Smoking Backpack Leads Deputies to Meth Lab
GREENFIELD, Ohio (WKRC) -- A report of a car crash in Highland County turns into a meth lab bust.
Highland County deputies were called to Jury Road, near Centerfield, early Thursday morning to search for a crashed vehicle. After finding the car, deputies say they found evidence of drug activity. He took two people into custody.
The deputy searched the area for another person and found a man face down about five rows into a cornfield. The deputy then found a smoking backpack, which he believed was a working meth lab. Inside the deputy found items often used to make meth and a 'one-pot' working lab in a Mountain Dew bottle.
Deputies arrested the man with the backpack, Nathan Snodgrass. They also arrested driver Leah Kline and passenger Charles Howard. A fourth person got away.
The Highland County Sheriff's office says this is the 78th meth lab found in the county this year. That number doesn't include labs found in the county's cities like Hillsboro.
