[ARCHIVED] Meth Lab Dismantled and Three Arrested

On Tuesday, February 7th, at about 7:34 a.m., Kerrville Police Officers responded to the 2300 block of Junction Hwy to check children’s welfare as requested by Child Protective Services.

Officers arrived to the apartment and spoke with the children’s mother. When the officers entered the apartment, they could smell an ammonia-like odor which is consistent with manufacturing methamphetamine.

Three other adults were in the apartment, and according to the mother the children weren’t home. The woman agreed to let officers look around the apartment. Officers found two plates with white powdery substance in two of the bedrooms which field tested positive as methamphetamine.

Officers also found evidence of a possible meth lab in a closet in the apartment, including components used in the manufacture of methamphetamine.

The Kerrville Police Department Special Crimes Unit along with the Kerr County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Division responded to the scene to assist with the investigation.

Two of the people in the apartment were arrested, one on charges of Possession of Methamphetamine and another on charges of Possession of Marijuana and Drug Paraphernalia. The mother was subsequently arrested on charges of Possession of Methamphetamine. The fourth person in the apartment was released based on the information gathered in the investigation.

The case is being further investigated by the Kerrville Police Special Crimes Unit, and forwarded to the Kerr County Attorney’s Office and the Kerrville Municipal Court.
