A duffel bag found full of items for making meth leads to 2 arrests.
Agents from the I-135/I-70 Drug Task Force were called to a home at 328 S. 10th Street on Thursday evening after a resident found a bag full of suspicious items and contacted police.
Officers arrested 18-year-old Trace Cutbirth and 48-year-old Martin Yoho in connection to ingredients found in the bag.
According to Task Force Commander, Lt. Bill Cox, the two men were allegedly getting ready to manufacture methanphetamine from heating up pseudoephedrine in a “one pot cook.”
Police say camping fuel, plastic tubing and coffee filters are just some of the items used to produce meth.
Lt. Cox tells KSAL News that the process is very dangerous, “It’s a very volatile mix that can blow up on you,” he said.
Officers called the Kansas Bureau of Investigation to dispose of the ingredients.
