INDIANA COUNTY (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Pennsylvania State Police are investigating a meth dump site in Indiana County.

After receiving a tip about a potential methamphetamine dump site, an Indiana Patrol unit investigated a location along Lower Laurel Road in Buffington Township of Indiana County.

After inspection, the trooper discovered numerous bags that suggested that the wooded area along the road was a meth dump site.

The Pennsylvania State Police Clandestine Laboratory Response Team was then called upon to do a deep dive into the contents of the dump site.

So far, numerous tools and paraphernalia, such as one-pot vessels, acid generators, and empty chemical containers, along with the bags, were extracted from the site.

The items were processed, and the site is still under active investigation.

Any information about the site or illegal drug activity at large is encouraged to be brought to the Pennsylvania State Police or local law enforcement’s attention.

Anonymous reports can be made with the Drug Trafficking Tip Line at 1-877-PA-NODRUGS.
