Why was the house not condemned or at least locked up. Instead they left the house open for everyone to go back inside. If this really was a lab why did they not arrest everyone in there. This was a very poor attempt to clean up the neighborhood. As I live very close the house in question there is still something very suspicious going on in the house on the corner of North and Todd streets.

I do know the family renting the house. This is not a drug house, the mother works at a local factory and her children, mother and grandmother , all work together. The man arrested was a boyfriend with a criminal past who is suspected . The house in questions has been tested and the air quality shows no sign of chemical hazards, not even a sign of something suspicious going on. The lab in questions is based on household items found in the trash at the property line. Lets at least be fair and asume inocence untill proven guilty.

Dear Friends, I believe this was a desperate attempt by someone that said there was a meth lab in this house. I heard that there was just some cold medication's found. Some body is very very desperate for attention or something. Some people like to take credit to make themselves look like they should get an award or some type of recognition. How in the world did this get enough attention to be called a meth lab? I would like to know who said that this was a meth lab? I know the Findlay Courier makes false report's and exaggerates thing's to get attention for their news paper.

What do you expect from a city that is 75 percent republican RACISTS! The courier thrives on the lies about poor and minority people.

Is it true that Ohio is going to start neutering republicans to curtail the ignorance?

I think it is outstanding for the police to be able to conduct an investigation and execute a raid to make the arrest before this person (who has already spent time in prison for selling to an undercover police officer) produced the drug and the extremely toxic byproducts. If you live in this community you should praise the police, not bad mouth them for protecting you and your families. If you truly understood how dangerous the byproducts are you would be the next person to report a suspected meth lab.

I'm sure the police did a thorough investigation concerning this drug bust. They may even have gotten some evidence? Maybe someone set them up. I do not care about this person's past. He has done his time for what seems to be what you say "drugh dealing in the past." My father has been notified of a sex offender across the street from his house and I have also seen his picture. I see a lot of people over there that fit his description should I say to all of them because they all look alike to me that they are criminal's and child molester's? I might keep and eye out for this man but I'm not going to take the law into my own hand's and say that they are quilty of this crime. The police can very well keep track of someone they suspect of criminal activity. I say this person is innocent until proven quilty in any case even if caught red handed. I know someone that took the blame for drug's her boy friend was selling because when the police came after him he threw the drug's whih was LSD to her and they arrested her and let him go and she spent five year's in prison probably not knowing this would happen. What did he do he was going out with other women while she was in jail. From what I hear it was a couple of cold medicine medications that are sold over the counter. I think you need to get a life and do other thing's besides looking after people that are of no concern to you. You also need to call the police if you think something criminal is taking place. A lot of time's people are wrong about someone because they think the person is commiting a crime. Where was the meth lab at? Was there a meth lab? Where did it go after it was found? Did the police enter the house wearing protective clothing. I'm sure non of this happened. Get a life you need one.

I heard if you really want to stop drug's then you should find Mario Cortez from Hoytville, Ohio and watch him and follow him because he is a cocaine user and dealer. I'll bet he has more cocaine than that person that was supposedly making meth. Maybe they work together? All I know is we need to stop this scurge for the sake of all our children and ourseleve's. I know this from a person that Mario Cortez got hooked on cocaine. He gives it away than gets them addictaded and then he sell's it to them after they get addictad. If you get hooked on drug's you need to get to a rehabilitation center right away and they will have doctor's that willl help you get off drug's and maybe save your whole life. Don't wait get help you need now!

Mario Cortez from Hoytville, Ohio is a cocaine dealer and we should follow him wherever he goes and take pictures of him and send them to the police where he is located and point him out to society because he is causing brain damage to other people that do not know much about what they are doing. Stop Mario Cortez now!!!

You're all forgetting that the police found Meth pipes in the house and meth residue in them. All the ingredients to make it as well a bottle gasing off in the back yard. The pill shells in the fire pit in the back yard. If there wasn't a method lab explain all the ingredients and methods pipes found. You can't cause there was really a meth lab there he went to supreme court and lost his appeal as well. Oh don't forget all the pharmacy records that clearly showed he bought the pills found in the fire pit. The police and dea got it right

Wouldnt you believe the Johnson's made up the whole story... that should be its own news article about how they spent 2 to 3 weeks before they went to cops coming up with this whole story then how after he got of prison you all was spying i wouldnt doubt it if you all wasnt spying 8 years ago i mean you do all that then you come online and try to ruin his reputation then you move in right across the street from him and you sit here in this article acting like you knew nothing. You spent years spying on him..

That was very helpful piece of evidence which the johnsons disclosed cause the feds went back and looked at it and looked at the johnsons spying and looked at the dudes case and determined he was falsly accused and gave him a pardon... id beware of anyone named johnsons in mccomb because they will try to falsly accuse you... i have real evidence which i will disclose to the public about the spying and their lying.... its all public information and due to the freedom of information act the public has the right to said information about everything... the more people try to cover it up the more ill leak about everything... and i have information about this meth lab too...

As you can tell McComb has always been a drug town I feel like the public should be aware of all the activities taken place in the community to keep themselves and everyone else safe... I've lived in that town many years I know everyone who lives there there's a lot of people who feel the need to try to cover up criminal activity by putting the blame and focus on other people... The easier it is for them to blame others the easier it is for them to cover up the truth... I'm willing to debate with anyone who feels like this wasn't a meth lab or if they feel there was type of false statement or information which I provided within this article...
