Meth superlab raided [AZ]

Meth superlab raided
July 30, 2005 - tucsoncitizen.com

Three people were arrested and 200 pounds of pseudoephedrine seized Thursday at southern Arizona's first known methamphetamine superlab near Arivaca, authorities said.

Anthony J. Coulson, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration's assistant special agent for southern Arizona, said the lab was found two miles west of Arivaca, on Universal Ranch Road, next to a fire station.

The lab was set up in a house that had enough materials to make 200 pounds of methamphetamine, worth about $2 million, he said. To be classed a superlab, an operation must be able to make 10 pounds in 24 hours, Coulson said.

DEA agents also seized 6,600 pounds of marijuana with a wholesale value of $3.3 million, guns and cash.

U.S. Border Patrol agents were part of the raid and one of three people at the lab was turned over to them for voluntary return to Mexico. His name was not available.

Leslie A. Williford, 30, of the 100 block of West Aragon Street in Tucson was arrested on suspicion of possession of marijuana and released at an initial court appearance yesterday in U.S. District Court here, Coulson said.

She was booked into the Pima County Jail, however, on a charge of failure to appear in a City Court domestic violence case and ordered held on $1,550 bail, authorities said.

Also arrested was Robert Piehl, 39, of Arivaca on suspicion of conspiracy to distribute marijuana, said Patrick Schneider, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office in Phoenix.

Piehl was ordered held for a detention hearing early next week, Schneider said.
