Police believe an explosion that tore through a mobile home Monday night happened because someone was cooking meth in the home.
It happened in Watertown Township, in Clinton County around 8 p.m. Monday. A haz-mat team responded to decontaminate the area, along with several police agencies.
The Clinton County Sheriff's Department says they believe three people were actually making the meth in one mobile home and went to another home right down the street to cook it. That's where the explosion happened.
Officials say they think they were making it by what's called the "one pot method" or "shake method," a common trend to make meth in a 2 liter bottle.
The two men arrested at the scene Monday night were arraigned Tuesday afternoon. Those men were 55-year-old Michael Kelly and 20-year-old James Eimer.
Police say they are still looking for a third person who they say is 18 years old.
Neighbors say they are still shaken by what happened.
"Me and my brother and his friend were eating and we heard a big boom and we thought something blew up," said Jessica Redman, "We opened the door...I could smell the chemicals right away, we saw 3 or 4 people run out of the trailer…there was people shouting…there was smoke everywhere"
Caution tape and shattered windows are what's left of the mobile home, just feet from where Redman and her children live.
"A lot of us were really upset, I mean I know some of the people who live right next door and it literally shook their trailer," said Redman.
The sheriff's office says in Clinton County they've had 3 meth lab explosions in the last 5 months. It's becoming more and more of a reality throughout counties in Michigan, simply because of how easy it is to make.
"They're finding a lot of ways to make this product…make it really easy and inexpensive," said Sheriff Wayne Kangas, Clinton County.
Officials say there are numerous things you can look out for as a neighbor including an excessive number of gas cans lying around, a strong odor that lingers and any suspicious activity.
"It's not like other drugs. It has a far more devastating effect from cooking meth than other drugs," said Sheriff Kangas.
The effects of cooking meth are long lasting. Many times it leaves houses condemned and neighbors left with the mess.
"I'm definitely going to be moving out in the next month or so," said Redman.
Detectives at the sheriff's office they say here in Michigan they're making big strides in trying to control the issue. The biggest ingredient in making meth is ephedrine and a few years ago they passed a law making it much harder for people to get their hands on it.
