Meth Lab Discovered In Vacant Home, 1 Arrested

KELO Sioux Falls Police SFPD

A Sioux Falls man has been arrested after police say they found a methamphetamine lab in a vacant home.
The house is owned by the Sioux Falls Development Foundation and is scheduled to be torn down to make way for industrial development. Police say an employee from the foundation went to the home and found the 30-year-old man squatting there. Police say they found materials for making meth.
Authorities say a home-base meth lab is becoming uncommon because the risk of getting caught or killed has become too great. Police spokesman Sam Clemens says now most meth is imported from cartels across the southern border.
