Possible meth-making trash removed from Hip Pocket roadway Sun.

A not-so-simple 2 liter bottle found by a woman on Hip Pocket Road late Sunday morning led to a hazardous material team collecting the bottle and other ingredients found in the street that may have been used to produce methamphetamine drugs, Peachtree City police said.

The woman found the trash on the northern section of the road inside a bag at about 11:20 a.m., police said. After picking it up, she noticed a suspicious substance inside the bottle and called 911, police said.

Officers who responded determined the material could be extremely hazardous, said Lt. Mark Brown of the Peachtree City Police Department.

Because of the hazardous nature of such materials, a special remediation agent was used to remove the items, police said.

An investigation into the origin of the suspicious material is ongoing, police said.
