Smoking "One pot" meth lab found behind grocery store

SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) - Police think a "one pot" meth lab became too hot to handle so the owner threw it out of a car behind a Salisbury grocery store.

On Monday afternoon a truck driver discovered an Adidas bag on the ground near a loading dock behind the Food Lion in the 500 block of Jake Alexander Boulevard.

The driver said the bag was smoking, so he called 911.

Police arrived and found the bag still smoking.  According to the report, it contained all the ingredients necessary to make the highly illegal and addictive drug methamphetamine.

The SBI was called to remove the bag.
