Bad economy may spur more meth labs in Iowa

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- The economy may be behind a sudden rash of meth labs in eastern Iowa. That's according to the Tri-County Drug Task Force.

In the past three years, the Tri-County Drug Task Force has busted 31, 32 and 29 meth labs, respectively, in Black Hawk and Bremer counties. In the past seven days, they've busted 4 meth labs.

The Tri-County Drug Task Force expects a slight spike in meth labs in the bad economy as people look to make money off the drug.
