42 Lbs of Ecstasy Seized, Lab Busted [CAN]

Dangerous lab busted
Mar 23 2005
tricitynews.com

Two Port Coquitlam men appeared in court yesterday in connection with a methamphetamine lab that took Mounties two days to dismantle on the weekend and yielded about $200,000 worth of ecstasy.

Police say the suspects had a lab so dangerous that "this house could have blown at any time," said Coquitlam RCMP Const. Dave Babineau. "These are amateurs doing this kind of stuff. It's not like you've got chemists in there with all the precautionary stuff. They were looking to make a quick dollar."

Saturday, Coquitlam RCMP's drug section, RCMP E Division's clandestine lab team and Health Canada were deployed to the home in the 29-unit strata complex at 1615 Shaughnessy St. and removed 200 exhibits and 42 pounds of "finished" ecstasy - meth that was ready to be pressed into pills.

Methamphetamine - known on the street as crystal meth, crank, glass or zip - is the strongest amphetamine; ecstasy, a popular drug often found at raves, is a derivative of crystal meth.
Neighbours told The Tri-City News they had no idea the meth lab was nearby.

"Nobody had a clue. We had no idea, which is funny because you usually know who is coming or going," said one neighbour, who declined to be identified.
"There was nothing unusual with them," another neighbour said. "There were no fights on the street or crime outside. I think that they just moved in here."

Babineau said investigators were led to the complex in the Citadel Heights sub-division after receiving information March 2 from the city that it found a tar-like substance in the sewage line. The next day, Coquitlam's drug cops took samples with Health Canada officials and determined the substance was MDMA, or methylenedioxyamphetamine, a chemical used in ecstasy production.

Babineau declined to say how police pinpointed the home in which the drug was being made. The city of PoCo also declined comment because of the investigation.
The suspects - age 22 and 32, one of them the homeowner - face charges of making a controlled substance, which carries a penalty of life behind bars.

As police were dismantling the lab, Babineau said a member of Coquitlam RCMP's Marijuana Enforcement Team (MET) also located a pot grow op a few doors down. A total of 1,041 plants were taken from four grow rooms and a large crawl space was being prepped as a grow room and the doors to the home were blocked with pieces of lumber. No one has been arrested for that operation.

Although police have found meth labs this year in Mission and Surrey, the labs are not so common in the Tri-Cities (the last one police uncovered was located on Westwood Street in Port Coquitlam more than four years ago).

Still, the demand for the drug locally is on the rise. According to a MetroValley News report last year, more people have sought help for amphetamine abuse in the last five years in the Fraser Health Authority than any other region in B.C.

And a report released last month by BC Coroner's Service shows one person died in PoCo last year with meth in his or her system.

First, MDMA is methylenedioxyMETHamphetamine, and secondly, it isn't used in the production of ecstasy, it IS ecstasy.

Did they have the grow in plain sight or something? It just puzzles me how they would somehow manage to find such a grow.

Its BC, all they have to say is they busted a grow opp in the area and its most likly true, cause it didnt have anything to do with the lab by the looks of it.
