Watauga looks into discarded meth materials

BOONE -- Authorities in Watauga County are trying to determine who was responsible for the apparent discarded methamphetamine lab discovered earlier this week.

A trash bag containing items used to produce meth was discovered Monday off Longhope Road. That is in the Todd community, about 6 miles north of Boone.

The sheriff’s office received a call from a resident about the bag. Deputies called in a state meth lab unit to help clean and investigate the site.
