LAWRENCE COUNTY — No arrests have been made yet following the discovery a meth lab in Lawrence County apartments Thursday evening.


According to the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office, they received a call at 6:45 p.m. on Thursday, complaining about a “strange odor” coming from 223 Township Road 1186, Apt. 30 (the Lawrence Common Apartments), in South Point. The caller also asked the Sheriff’s Office to check the well being of children who may be inside the apartment.


Upon arrival, the deputies said they could smell the odor coming from inside the apartment. They met with the occupants, who gave the deputies permission to search the apartment. Inside they found a “shake and bake” methamphetamine lab, made of a 20-ounce soda bottle, rubber tube, and the ingredients for making meth. Deputies called for assistance of another deputy specially trained in identifying and cleaning up meth labs and the substance was positively identified as meth.


“This is a very dangerous and volatile situation as when we then ingredients are combined they can be very flammable,” said Lawrence County Sheriff Jeff Lawless.


The Perry Township Fire Department and Gallia County Sheriff’s Office also assisted on the scene, where the meth lab was contained. Lawless said the cleanup was ongoing late into Thursday night and arrests were expected but none have yet been made.
