Man Cooking Raccoon Leads Police To Meth Lab [Video]
A man who was cooking a raccoon outside led police to a home meth lab in Tennessee. The man, who has not yet been named, cooked the raccoon outside of his apartment complex, and allegedly had several large knifes. Neighbors say that there were several people around while the man was cooking the raccoon, and there was even a futon set up near the grill.
Officers found the man grilling the raccoon, and discovered several buckets of a suspicious, unknown material. This discovery prompted a new investigation. Investigators called in their unit’s meth task force, and it was not long before they discovered that the brother of the man cooking the raccoon was running a home meth lab in his apartment.
26 year old Adam Eubank was charged with promoting the manufacture of methamphetamine. Police believe that Eubank had been using cold medication to manufacture methamphetamine about three dozen times in the past year alone. He was taken into custody by police and is being held on $75,000 bond.
Neighbors say this isn’t the first time the brothers have cooked up something suspicious. ”We would smell funny things sometimes,” said neighbor Chris Phillip.
In a video interview, Phillip said that the residents of their apartment complex refer to the brothers as ‘the squirrel brothers’, because they once found them skinning a squirrel on the common stairs.
Despite the fact that this type of behavior seems to be a regular occurrence for the brothers, some neighbors were still taken aback by the raccoon barbecue.
“I’m shocked, I mean it’s a raccoon, where did they even find it?” said neighbor Shelton Russell.
