BUFFINGTON TOWNSHIP — State police at Indiana are investigating what appears to be a methamphetamine dump site along Lower Laurel Road in Buffington Township.

A spokesman for state police Troop A said a member of the Indiana Patrol Unit found several plastic bags indicative of a meth dump site shortly after 1 p.m. Monday, after receiving information about methamphetamine manufacturing occurring in the area.

Upon arrival at that location, Trooper Cliff Greenfield said, the responding trooper discovered the bags discarded in a wooded area along the roadside.

Greenfield said the Pennsylvania State Police Clandestine Laboratory Response Team was then summoned. He said it processed 42 suspected one-pot vessels, 100 acid generators and various empty chemical containers.

Greenfield said this remained an active investigation.

He said state police encourage anyone with information related to suspected illegal drug activity to notify the state police or their local law enforcement agency. He said anonymous reports may be made via a toll-free, 24-hour Drug Trafficking Tip Line at 1-877-PA-NODRUGS [(877) 726-6378].
