(FORT WAYNE) - With the warmer weather now in place, Indiana State Police are reminding residents what to do in case they come across trash from a methamphetamine lab.
This type of trash may contain chemicals that are toxic, flammable, corrosive and acidic. The chemicals could explode, catch fire or burn you if they come in contact with your skin.
Keep in mind that Meth cooks are using a variety of containers to manufacture their product. You should also keep an eye out for battery casings, Ziploc style bags, empty blister packs and containers that have a granular material.
Be aware of any type of cylinder found in an odd place that has a modified valve.
You are being asked to leave this kind of trash alone. Instead, call the State Police in Fort Wayne at (260) 432-8661 or (800) 552-0976. Any questions or concerns about meth can be directed to the Meth Suppression Section at (877) 855-METH or online at www.meth.in.gov.
