In the winter of 2003, I was out driving by properties that I was managing in Minnesota, checking to make sure the tenants were maintaining the exteriors.

    I can’t imagine the neighbors didn’t think something was going on. In our neighborhood everyone watchs out for one another homes and strange activity. The landlord should have made a couple surprise visits.

    A meth lab has to be a property owner’s (and manager’s) worst nightmare. I’m glad that everything worked out well for you. Interesting to know, too, that the police are that helpful. I guess if I had a similar problem, I know who I’d call.

    Jim – The police and other organizations busted a Meth lab in a condo building that I used to live in. It was actually quite a harrowing experience finding out that the guy upstairs and 1 door over from you could have caused your death. They found tons of stuff in the walls and out in the open. Thank god they busted him! I can understand what you went through completely, and am very happy that there was actually nothing there.

    When we hired a new accountant and she moved into my old office she was a little freaked to find a “meth labs tip sheet” on the wall…. We had a massive meth lab two blocks over from our office. If it had blown, it would have taken out 6 blocks….

    My husband had to take a continuing education class for first responders and they spent a whole day discussing meth. An amazing statistic that he learned was that they average cost to clean up a meth site (requires haz-mat) is approximately #300,000! Crazy huh.
