Concern Rises as More Meth Labs are Broken Into
Authorities are on high alert as the number of methamphetamine lab related crimes rise in Allegany County, Potter County and McKean County. Allegany County has the most, with about six different labs raided just this year; one just off Main Street in Wellsville was broken into back in March and one lab actually blew up in Andover last June. During a press conference held last week by New York State troopers, residents were advised to familiarize themselves with the substances that are used in cooking the drug, which according to police is a fairly simple process.
