The use of crystal methamphetamine is a problem for many in this society. The high makes people energetic and lively, but meth causes people to tweak and has many negative effects. Recently, much to the dismay of employees and customers, a portable meth lab was found in a Walmart in Muncie, IN.
The meth lab was found in a backpack left in the Walmart bathroom. It contained the tools and ingredients needed to cook up a batch of meth using the “shake and bake” or “one pot” method. Walmart officials say they noticed a man walking around the store with a backpack earlier. The man had been seen in the store several times before, purchasing items related to the process of cooking meth.
The police were notified of the suspicious man and authorities were tailing the him the store. He went into the bathrooms located at the front of the Walmart with the backpack, but emerged from that bathroom without it. It was at this point that police looked inside the bag and saw the “Breaking Bad” kit inside of it.
Police say that the situation could have been much more dire because corrosive acid had eaten through the bottom of the backpack and dripped on to the floor. It is being reported that the ventilation in the Walmart bathroom sent the toxic fumes out of the store. The bathroom was shut down for hours so that it could be properly stripped of any hazardous materials. Police are still looking for the man responsible.
