Most meth labs are hidden in private homes and businesses and most of those are rented from owners like you who are law-abiding citizens. Safely removing one can be a dangerous operation.
Meth labs are most often constructed by individuals without a background in chemistry and are poorly constructed and highly volatile or flammable. Dangerous chemicals such as ether, benzene, paint thinner, Freon, acetone, anhydrous ammonia, lye, hydrochloric acid all sit near propane cylinders and open flames.
Signs that you may have a meth lab illegally operating on your property are:
- Chemical Odors
- Blackened Windows or Drawn Curtains
- Frequent Visitors at Odd Hours
- Heightened Security such as Multiple Deadbolts, Barred Windows or Doors or Guard
- Paranoid Behavior

Methamphetamine is a Schedule II controlled substance that stimulates the central nervous system and is more potent and addictive than most other illicit drugs. In recent years, there has been a tremendous spike in the illegal manufacture and use of this highly addictive drug.
According to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, in 1999 the DEA seized 1,948 drug labs and 99 percent of them were meth labs. In 1994 there were only 306 meth labs seized by the DEA.
That’s an increase of 537 percent in only five years and doesn’t include the 4,400 labs raided in the same year by local and state law enforcement. The numbers have only continued to increase as meth labs have become a problem for many communities in the Greater Atlanta area and across Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Northern Florida.
Increases to emergency rooms as a result of injuries from a meth lab exploding or going up in flames have also increased.
