Trash Trucks Are A Terrible Place For Used Meth Labs

Attention meth cooks and Walter White wannabes: Please don't throw your used meth lab equipment in the trash. They've been known to start fires inside of moving trash trucks.

Luckily, an Evansville, Ind. garbage truck driver noticed smoke and smelled the funny smell before his truck caught on fire. He called emergency services, and authorities found the smoldering remains of a meth lab in the back of the truck.


So far, there have been eight similar incidents in the same area, some of which have caught on fire. I feel bad for the trash truck drivers and whoever answers those 911 calls. No one likes driving around a flaming trash truck or digging meth bottles out of burning garbage.

Leave it in the back of the Aztek instead.
