ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A man was arrested in connection with discovery of a methamphetamine lab in Palmer on Tuesday, Alaska State Troopers said.
Troopers served David Dreves, 23, with a warrant to search his property and checked a camper where they found a production laboratory, chemicals and apparatus for methamphetamine production and other drug paraphernalia.
Troopers also seized chemicals that are being tested for the presence of methamphetamine.
Dreves was charged with several counts of misconduct, which could carry sentences of up to 20 years in prison and fines of up to $50,000. He is being held at Mat-Su Pre-Trial Facility on $20,000 bail.
Methamphetamine is an addictive stimulant also known as speed. The labs that produce it are dangerous because of the volatility of the ingredients.
