How NOT to fund the cruising kitty: meth lab

Meth lab discovered on sailboat near Daytona Beach

DAYTONA BEACH -- You may have heard about meth labs being busted inside homes, trailers and apartments, but on Thursday, Volusia County deputies said they dismantled a meth lab in a sailboat.
Investigators said the boat was moored in the Intracoastal Waterway near Daytona Beach.
A Volusia County task force and Daytona Beach police were tipped off about illegal activity taking place on boats in the area, investigators said.

Based on those leads, agents investigated a sailboat belonging to 50-year-old James Smith. Inside, they found a homemade generator used in making methamphetamine, along with other supplies.
Smith was arrested and booked into the Volusia County Branch Jail on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine.
A woman on the boat was also arrested on an outstanding warrant, deputies said.

Re: How NOT to fund the cruising kitty: meth lab

What a moron! Everyone knows if you're gonna cook a batch, you need to go a ways off shore to get away from anyone who might smell the chemicals!

Also, never sell your product in your own marina. You don't want your neighbors keeping you up all night tearing apart and rebuilding their diesels, generators, watermakers, capstans, autopilots, winches and refrigerators.
