Chemical Used in Meth Stolen from Shrewsbury Factory

In a tale that could come straight out of AMC’s Breaking Bad, a man stole a chemical used to make methamphetamine from a loading dock at Carr Lane Manufacturing.

Police are looking for a man who stole anhydrous ammonia, a chemical used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine, from a Shrewsbury factory.

The tank of anhydrous ammonia was taken from the storage area of the Carr Lane Manufacturing loading dock at 4200 Carr Lane between 12:30 and 1:30 a.m. September 3, according to the crime blotter.

The suspect, who is white, drove a silver or gray four-door truck with a sunroof and four-wheeler ramps in the back. A white woman was in the passenger side of the car.

Anhydrous ammonia is an effective, low-cost nitrogen-based fertilizer used by many farmers, but the chemical is also a vital component in “shake and bake” methamphetamine.

And if you’re a fan of AMC’s Breaking Bad, here’s a video of the two main characters stealing a barrel of chemicals to make methamphetamine.
