Nearly a dozen 'one-pot' mobile meth labs taken off Franklin streets


FRANKLIN - Edward Rayno had lived off Spring Street for 35 years and wasn't surprised when police seized what they're calling about a dozen mobile meth labs from the neighborhood.

“It’s just something you hear of that’s just always going on,” Rayno said.

“It’s what's known as a one pot - shake and bake," Police Chief David Goldstein said. "Using a two-liter soda bottle, they put the ingredients in - and from their point of view, they get the drug they need."

One man who did not want to be on camera told NH1 News he was out walking his dog when he came across the bottles in a make-shift parking lot.

He said the night before, a group of kids were attempting to steal gasoline from an ATV.

Police said it could possibly have been to cook the meth.

“This can be very volatile and explosive and the fumes are dangerous as well,” Goldstein said.

Franklin police say they are investigating the incident but are confident an arrest will be made soon.

Until then, neighbors and parents are on high alert.

“Not just me, but there are little kids running around here," parent Kevin Gallant said. "It’s just nuts.”

Franklin police are urging anyone with more information to call the Concord Regional Crimeline at 226-3100.
