Meth Labs on the rise in Johnson County

IOWA CITY (KWWL)--Despite proactive measures to fight meth production with the pseudoephedrine law, officials in Johnson County see rising numbers.

In 2008, law enforcement officers in Iowa City, Coralville and Johnson County, along with the Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement seized 28 meth labs. Many of those meth busts came late in the year.

Officials say crack cocaine has slowed in the past years as authorities busted major crack distributors.
