'One-pot' meth lab found in Juneau home

Alaska State Troopers say they found evidence of a meth lab at a Juneau home while executing a search warrant on Thursday.

Troopers discovered and seized six “one-pot” method methamphetamine labs and precursors associated with those labs at the Kanata Street home at about 3:10 p.m., according to a trooper dispatch.

“One-pot” means that the chemical reaction is confined within one pot, usually a soda bottle.

The lab was processed by investigators with the Alaska Bureau of Investigations’ Southeast Alaska Cities Against Drugs (SEACAD) task force. SEACAD also contacted the owner of the residence, whose name was not released.

Law enforcement will be recommending the residence owner be charged with second-degree drug misconduct, according to the dispatch. The charges will be forwarded to the district attorney’s office.

The warrant was executed by SEACAD with assistance from the Juneau Police Department’s Drug Enforcement Unit, the FBI and Alaska Wildlife Troopers.

Kanata Street is located of Mendenhall Loop Road in the Mendenhall Valley.
