Coleman fuel isn’t just popular among campers; tt’s also a favorite among meth-makers.
“It’s a base,” Roane County Sheriff’s Office Deputy John Mayes explained.
Pseudoephedrine, a decongestant in cold and allergy medicines, is the main precursor used in meth production, according to law enforcement officials. However, other legal products are used to make meth.
Police reports often list Coleman fuel, coffee filters, Drano, plastic bottles, lithium batteries, tubing and aluminum foil.
