Vacate order issued after meth bust


Meth, other chemicals found at Oakville home, police say


March 13, 2013 - An order to vacate was placed on an Oakville home Wednesday after the arrest of a 33-year-old resident, and the medical evaluation and protective placement of a 3-year-old child, according to a St. Louis County Police Department news release.

County Police served a search warrant that evening on the residence in the 5200 block of Camelot Estates, which resulted in the confiscation of nearly 20 grams of finished product, roughly 60 grams of liquid meth and more 150 pounds of anhydrous ammonia and other equipment that was used to produce methamphetamine, the release stated.

The order stemmed from an incident Tuesday when officers from the county Police Department's South County Precinct responded to a call in the 5100 block of Lemay Ferry Road.

Employees of a local business reported that an individual dumped items illegally into their dumpster in the rear of the business, the release stated. Officers found remnants of eight different "one-pot" meth labs in the dumpster and contacted the county Police Department's Drug Enforcement Team, which responded to the scene. The investigation into the incident led them to the Camelot Estates residence where finished product, chemicals and meth-lab precursor were found inside, according to the release.

County Police Chief Timothy Fitch stated in the release, "This is another example of the success related to individuals in the community getting involved, and working together with the professionals in the St. Louis County Police Department to rid our neighborhoods of dangerous and criminal activities"

The order to vacate will remain in effect until the property owner provides a certified letter from a professional contamination abatement professional stating that the house is free of residue/contaminants relating to methamphetamine production, according to the release.
