Meth lab explosion rocks neighborhood

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WISH) – The Lafayette Police Department responded to an explosion that rocked a neighborhood on Friday night.

Police responded to calls of an explosion and observed that the door to the refrigerator in the apartment seemed to be the source of the explosion, because it had been blown off of the hinges and into a nearby counter.

Police also noticed that there was a strong chemical smell coming from the entire apartment. After searching, they determined that no one was in the residence.

Officials surveyed the area and found a bag in a dumpster that they believed contained what is called a “One Pot” meth lab.

Police called in the Indiana State Police Meth Suppression Unit who were able to confirm that the bag was indeed a meth lab.

Investigators are asking that anyone with any information to call the Lafayette Police Department or the We-Tip Hotline at 1-800-78-CRIME.
