Last week I had the news on as background noise but my ears perked up when the reporter announced breaking news of police in a Mesa apartment not far from where I live. Apparently they had located a stolen vehicle in the complex and were going door to door trying to find the suspect when they came across an apartment of a man operating a meth lab. The guy actually answered the door when the police knocked and naturally the smell of chemicals was the giveaway and he was arrested. Putting aside the complete stupidity of a meth lab or even just using meth in the first place, why in the world would you open the door to anyone WHILE you were cooking it? Much less to the police? Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad the guy was a total moron and got caught but seriously. How dumb do you have to be? The report went on to say that based on evidence they found, the lab had been in operation for quite some time and that the police were 1) stunned no one had ever reported or complained of the smell coming from the apartment and 2) relieved that nothing had ever ignited causing an explotion. Well, that makes two of us. You know my main concern with my neighbors used to be that they would be quiet and leave me alone. Now I have to add please don’t blow me up to the list.
