Meth production still prominent in county, surrounding area
Even after stricter laws regulating pseudoephedrine, the average amount of seized clandestine meth sites in Jasper County is seven per year.
Starting in 2005, pharmacies were required to record and report the purchase of pseudoephedrine products. All pharmacies were reporting to the National Precursor Log Exchange by Sept. 1, 2010. Since that time, 34 clandestine meth labs have been seized in Jasper County, six so far this year.
Brad Shutts, east commander for the Mid-Iowa Narcotics Enforcement Task Force, said pseudoephedrine tracking laws work, and have had some success in Jasper County, with the help of the task force.
