St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - Missouri law enforcement officials have changed their tactics in the war on meth. New figures show that the changes are having an effect.

 

In 2013, for the first time in a decade, Missouri did not lead the nation in meth busts. The Show-Me state dropped to number 3 behind Indiana and Tennessee. The Post-Dispatch reports that changes in enforcement approaches and new laws may have caused the statistics to drop. The Jefferson County drug task force says they focused on making larger-scale labs.

 

Earlier in March, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported a seizure of 95 meth labs just outside Mountain Grove, Missouri. The drug raid was believed to be a record for a single seizure in Missouri.

OZARK, MO (AP) – A southwest Missouri police checkpoint aimed at drunken drivers on St. Patrick’s Day instead snared 10 people suspected of possessing methamphetamine.
 
The Springfield News-Leader reports 12 arrests stemmed from the checkpoint Monday in Christian County, of which only one was for driving while intoxicated. The other was for possession of marijuana.
 
Ozark Police Chief Lyle Hodges says three of the 12 arrested in the operation also had outstanding warrants. He says the number of drug arrests -- and lack of drunken driving charges -- was unusual.

   SYDNEY (AP) — Australian police seized around 200 million Australian dollars ($190 million) worth of methamphetamine hidden in the tires of a truck shipped from China, officials said Friday.

   Three Melbourne men were arrested after officials found more than 200 kilograms (440 pounds) of the drug in a shipment from Shanghai that arrived in Melbourne on Oct. 1, the Australian Federal Police said.

   "The concealment did show up on X-ray but what was unusual about the truck was when you just looked at it, nothing," Australian Customs and Border Protection Service Victoria regional director Graham Krisohos said.

   Two of the three men arrested were dock workers in Melbourne. The men face charges of importing and attempting to possess drugs and face a maximum sentence of life in prison if convicted.

   Australian police have made a series of large drug busts in recent months. The country is becoming an increasingly lucrative market for international drug networks because of the strength of the local currency and resilience of the national economy compared to other wealthy nations.

One Boeing employee faces charges after authorities found meth-making materials in one of the company's buildings yesterday.

Prosecuting Attorneys say Dennis Banker admitted to police that he not only put the materials in another employee's office, but left a note saying another employee was the one who brought the chemicals into the office. Authorities were alerted to the situation when a fire alarm tripped early Thursday morning.

A check of security cameras showed, Banker entered the building minutes before the alarm.

MO attorney general targets meth "smurfers"

Missouri's attorney general is looking for new ways to curb mathamphetatime use in the state.

At a news conference today, attorney general Chris Koster will outline initiatives against "smurfing," a practice that involves recruiting people to purchase medicines containing pseudoephedrine.

The campaign calls partly for Missouri pharmacies to display warnings at cash registers letting would-be smurfers know their actions have serious consequences.
