Got to say that renting a motel room to set up a meth lab in is a new one for me. Quite an ingenious way to avoid being suspected. In a motel, people come and go and don’t make a big deal out of strangely acting people or suspicious smells. Certainly so as opposed to doing the same in a residential neighborhood full of old ladies with nothing better to do whole day but snoop around.
This suspected methamphetamine lab blew up in room 110 of the Bayou La Batre Inn and Suites motel in Bayou La Batre, Alabama. After the explosion, 3 people ran into the woods. One of them – Carlton Parmer reportedly suffered burns to 35% of his body. He was picked up and taken to a hospital. His wife Brandy Parmer and their friend Dereck Robinson continued on.
At the end of the video the reporter says that this was Bayou La Batre’s first meth lab explosion and the resident hoped it was their last. Funny thing is – another meth lab set up in a trailer home on Satsuma Street blew up mere two weeks after this one.
