VINTONDALE — State police at Indiana are investigating after what appeared to be a methamphetamine manufacturing complex was found in a wooded area along Upper Laurel Road in Buffington Township, just over the Indiana County line from Vintondale, Cambria County.
At 4 p.m. Sunday, according to Indiana state police spokesman Trooper Cliff Greenfield, an officer from the Troop A, Indiana station conducted an area canvass and discovered several plastic bags of a suspicious nature.
Greenfield said the state police Clandestine Laboratory Response Team or CLRT was called out and found two one-pot vessels suspected of being used to process meth, and three acid generators.
However, Greenfield said, state police were not able to find any identifiable evidence pertaining to a suspect for this illegal dumpsite.
The state police spokesman is asking anyone with information related to this or other suspected illegal drug activity to notify state police or their local law enforcement agency.
He said anonymous reports may be made toll-free to a Drug Trafficking Tip Line at (877) PA-NODRUGS, (877) 726-6378.
