Police say meth lab found in North Ridgeville attic

NORTH RIDGEVILLE – Police are investigating a methamphetamine lab found in the attic of a Glenwood Court home.

At approximately 10:39 a.m. Monday, the resident of a home in the 33100 block of Glenwood Court called police to report that someone was possibly living in the attic above the garage of their home.

Officers arrived to find 27-year-old Conni Miller, who police learned had been living in the attic for approximately one week.

Police also found several indications of a crystal methamphetamine operation, according to a news release from the North Ridgeville Police Department.

The Detective Bureau, as well as agents from the Lorain County Drug Task Force, investigated the area and discovered items for manufacturing methamphetamine in the garage. The lab was removed with assistance from the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigations, according to police.

Police said 37-year-old Robert Reed, the adult son living at the home, had been hiding Miller in the attic without his parent’s knowledge. Reed is currently being held at the city’s jail after items used for smoking methamphetamine were allegedly found in his possession.

Miller was arrested on outstanding warrants through the North Ridgeville and Avon police departments.

The investigation into the methamphetamine lab is ongoing.

    And to think years ago we had these things called diet pills, stay awake for exam pills, truck driver long haul pills, and about 40 other conditions doctors prescribed regulated, safety inspected methamphetamine.If a problem developed you could go back to the source for medical help. President Kennedy was a known probably abuser by some standards. Were they over prescribed? Yes. Were they abused rather than taken properly by some people? Yes. But in the infinite wisdom of our drug war mentality we now have this wonderful by product made with kerosene and whatever in attics that turns people into zombies.Much like bathtub gin during alcohol prohibition. Analysis. Government says there is a problem. So now we will fix it. And what happens? Now the problem is worse.
