Colorado Suspect Arrested After Making ‘Healthy Meth Substance’
There is a suspect in Longmont, Colorado that is trying to become the next Walter White from the TV show Breaking Bad.
Craig William Rogers a 49-year-old resident of Longmont was arrested earlier this week in connection to a meth lab in a garage where he told police he was creating a "healthy meth substance" according to his arrest affidavit reported by Times-Call.
His charges now include:
- Suspicion of controlled substance possession
- Possession of drug paraphernalia and unlawful distribution, manufacturing, and dispensing of a controlled substance.
According to online court records the suspect was released one day after his arrest on a $15,000 bond.
The police were notified about the meth lab in a garage from a tipster who even had several photographs of the scene when bringing this information to law enforcement. After the tip, law enforcement began watching the home. Once they saw the suspect leave the home he was pulled over for a traffic stop.
Once police began questioning the suspect he admitted to having meth in the center console of his truck, and that he was making a "healthy meth substance" at home because there where acai berries in it. He was then placed under arrest.
Law enforcement officials said they found a berry-like substance inside the lab, but there is no possible way to make meth healthy.
After their search of the garage, it is estimated that the suspect had enough materials to manufacture an ounce of meth per day. At this time law enforcement isn't saying if this will lead to the arrest of any other individuals.
