Sheriff’s Office looking for leads in meth dumpsite probe

The Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in solving an investigation into a methamphetamine laboratory dump site found early this year in Fort Valley.

Sgt. Brent Lutz said the dump site was found in January or February in the area of Camp Roosevelt Road in Fort Valley. A disposal team was called and removed the plastic bottles — the vessels used to make meth. The bottles were spread throughout the area.

Lutz noted that the hazards that come with a meth lab can negatively affect the environment surrounding it. He said that he cannot say for sure if there was a lab set up there as well, and that he could only say that the remnants of a lab were disposed there. He also said that the Sheriff’s Office has been investigating the incident since it was discovered.

“The investigation is still pending,” Lutz said. “We’re generating leads and suspects as they come in.”

The Sheriff’s Office has asked that anyone with information the case to contact Lutz at the Sheriff’s Office at 540-459-6100.
