RAINELLE -

The Town of Rainelle in Greenbrier County is asking the public to help them crack down on meth labs in the area.

Town officials will be holding a meeting Tuesday, June 25 at Rainelle Town Hall at 6:30 p.m.

People can expect to learn about the warning signs of meth labs in your neighborhood and what types of dangerous activities to look out for.

This meeting comes after a surge of meth labs in Greenbrier County and in all counties in southern West Virginia.

Rainelle Police Chief J.P. Stephens said people from all over the area are welcome, not just Rainelle citizens.

"We're trying to bring all of the communities together so that they will be aware of what's going on.  And it's been working out pretty good so far.  We've had a lot of people come in giving us complaints or information on these meth users," Stephens said.

He added meth labs are becoming harder to find because they're becoming more mobile.  

A the meeting you'll learn how to spot warning signs of a meth lab, like cold medicines, drink containers, and other drug paraphernalia laying around in your neighborhood.  And even what to do to keep your family safe if you see something suspicious.

Stephens said there will be another educational community meeting next month, for those who could not make it to June's meeting.  To view and print the documents released by the Rainelle Police click on the link to the right.
