The Indiana State Police released an interactive map that displays the locations of found methamphetamine labs and dump sites dating back to 2007, the Evansville Courier & Press reported.
The database not only lists the dates and locations of the lab seizures, but what types of labs they were and their vehicle identification numbers, if they were seized in cars after Dec. 31, 2012. Many of the addresses also include the Indiana State Police’s meth lab occurrence report, which lists information such as items found at each location and whether there were children under 18 years of age there.
The Indiana State Police also released an online spreadsheet that lists all Indiana methamphetamine lab seizures and includes the Indiana Department of Environmental Management’s Certificate of Illegal Drug Lab Cleanup.
There are 386 Elkhart County locations on the list. The Indiana State Police seized 63 area labs in 2013, placing Elkhart among the top 10 counties with the most lab seizures. There were 40 seizures in St. Joseph County in the last year, but that’s just a fraction of around 1,800 seized across the state.
Indiana led other states in the number of reported meth-related incidents in 2013, according to a report from the Missouri State High Patrol. Some of the cooks are even beginning to make the drug in hotels, as reported by the Associated Press.
