DDN: Ohio Ranks 4th in Most Meth Lab Busts in 2013

The Dayton Daily News reported today that Ohio ranks 4th in the nation in the number of meth labs that were busted in 2013.

According to the National Clandestine Laboratory Seizure System, Ohio had 1,010 labs seized last year, up from 709 in 2012 (when it ranked just 7th in the country).

The article states that "methamphetamine has hit epidemic proportions across the state, especially in rural Ohio, where investigators find remnants of labs in fields and highways."

It goes on to add "The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation tracks meth lab seizures by federal fiscal year. The state's police officers report voluntarily, so there are likely more seizures than the statistics reflect."
