Lauderdale County officials discover meth lab on roadside

LAUDERDALE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - Law enforcement discovered a small meth lab in the town of Elgin.

Official said it has been there a couple of weeks and the recent rain washed away the chemicals.

The meth maker put the ingredients in a small duffle bag before leaving the bag on the side of the road.

"It used to be we'd find marijuana pots and plants this time of year. Now we are seeing an increase in meth. Our drug task force has been going around to churches to tell people to be on the look out and recognize this kind of stuff," said Sheriff Ronnie Willis of Lauderdale County.

Sheriff Willis says arrests are pending.
