Two suspected methamphetamine labs discovered

Posted: Thursday, April 03, 2003

FAIRBANKS (AP) -- Suspected methamphetamine labs were found in two Fairbanks homes this week, Alaska State Troopers said.

People cleaning an abandoned Goldstream Valley residence Sunday found ephedrine tablets and empty acetone and toluene containers in a bucket.

In the second case, troopers arrested a 23-year-old Fairbanks man on a charge of hiding a small batch of methamphetamine in a tin cigarette container he was carrying when drug investigators busted a suspected meth lab Monday.

Trooper Karl Main said investigators were acting on a tip when they went to the home.

Paul A. Grantham, who was visiting the residence, was arrested on a charge of fourth-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance.
