Mysterious Duffel Bag Raises Drug Concerns in Somerset

A duffel bag found in a Somerset cemetary is raising concerns about possible illegal meth production. Somerset Police Sgt. Mike Correll says someone left the satchel at the Somerset City Cemetary over the weekend. Authorities found multiple components needed to make methamphetamine in the bag. Correll called the discovery a chilling sign of what could be the new place to hide active meth labs.

Correll  told the Commonwealth Journal that the cemetery hasn’t been the site of any previously-known meth labs, but such areas can be difficult to patrol. 

Cemetary manager Tricia Neal found the bag while she was searching the back section of the cemetery for broken headstones near a wooded area
