Editor’s Note: Not that meth labs are wonderful or anything, but once again, this shows there is one rule for the government, another for everyone else. The government loves to fight the drug war… and make the drugs, too.
Gaithersburg, Maryland – A high-ranking NIST officer was recently forced to resign after creating an explosion inside of a government lab while attempting to manufacture methamphetamine.
According to NBC News, the explosion happened at the Gaithersburg, Md. campus of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, around 7:30 PM on Saturday.
An officer on the scene, who has not been named by police, was reportedly found with severe burns on his hands and arms, implicating him in the explosion.
Additionally, supplies were found on the scene that are typically associated with the manufacture of methamphetamine. When they arrived, police reportedly found pseudoephedrine, drain opener and even a recipe for methamphetamine.
Witnesses told police that after the explosion, the officer was seen throwing something in the trash and then running to his care to hide a duffle bag. The officer then attempted to tell police that he accidentally burned himself with a lighter.
“We are looking at the possibility that this was some sort of chemical reaction due to the manufacturing of drugs,” Montgomery County Police Capt. Paul Starks said.
Although the officer was forced to resign from his post at NIST, no arrests were made.
