Meth Contaminates Inmate on Litter Patrol

A Northpoint Training Center inmate suffered minor injuries Tuesday when he was exposed to a discarded meth lab while picking up trash along Hogue Hollow Road in southern Boyle County. Deputy Sheriff Jody Adams said the inmate, who was not identified, may have inhaled some chemical residue when the bottom of a bag he was collecting broke open and spilled materials and ingredients used to make methamphetamine.
