Chemical Company Will Stop Making Meth Precursors
Louisville, KY - A Louisville chemical company has agreed to stop selling chemicals used to make meth.
Antec, which employs five people, signed a plea deal with federal prosecutors over a violation of the Clean Water Act from 2002. It includes an agreement to stop selling chemicals such as red phosphorous and iodine crystals, which have been found frequently in meth lab raids around the country.
Federal investigators say it was easy to buy the chemicals from Antec, and directions to the company's Bergman Street location have been found several times during raids on meth labs.
