The bottles were examined by BCSO Bomb Squad personnel and determined to be drug related.  The bottles and contents appear to be the hazardous byproduct from a clandestine methamphetamine lab resulting from the manufacture of methamphetamine.

The investigation to date suggests that suspects manufacturing methamphetamine discarded the highly toxic and harmful byproducts and associated refuse on the beach.

“A volunteer beach clean-up crew picking up trash on the beach just South of Jetty Park found two clear plastic water bottles with tubing coming out of them which contained a yellow liquid, which could be a by-product of the meth-making operation,” said Lt. Mike Scully of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Department.

Mike Scully of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Department.

“The volunteer beach clean-up crew picked it (the bottles) up believing it was trash and put them in a plastic trash bag.  The bag became heavy, and when they put the bag down the bag started to smoke. The device didn’t detonate – it simply smoked, and melted the plastic bag that the garbage was in.”

Anyone with information about this investigation is urged to call CRIMELINE at 1-800-423-TIPS (8477).  All calls to CRIMELINE are confidential and callers can remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward.
