BOSCOBEL - Three people are awaiting charges after authorities in southwest Wisconsin broke up a meth-amphetamine factory in Boscobel.
A 25-year-old man, a 23-year-old man, and a 31-year-old woman face possible counts of manufacturing meth – and Grant County officials say more charges are possible. Online court records did not indicate that charges were filed in the case as of late this afternoon. Authorities raided a house this week where they arrested the suspects. They reportedly found a dozen “shake-and-bake” bottles in which the drug was being produced.
Officials said the suspects mixed the ingredients in bottles, and shook them to create the proper chemical reactions – and they said it’s a dangerous way to make meth, since bottles have been known to explode and injure people. Deputies said they had to call in a cleanup team from Michigan to remove the toxic chemical wastes.
Court records showed that the 25-year-old suspect had just been convicted of possessing meth and resisting an officer in a case from January.
