Makings of Meth Lab, Pipe Bomb Discovered
SALEM TOWNSHIP – Authorities said a man wanted for missing a court hearing in a meth case was tracked down with the makings of another suspected meth lab, two guns and a pipe bomb.
Officials with the PA Attorney General’s office told Newswatch 16 that Christopher Cragle is locked up on an arrest warrant and that he is expected to be charged soon.
According to officials in Harrisburg, agents in protective suits spent several hours removing components of a suspected meth lab, two guns, and a pipe bomb with a detonator and blasting caps connected, from a mobile home on Sleepy Hollow Lane near Shickshinny.
One neighbor who did not want to be identified told Newswatch 16 said she was not surprised to hear where the meth lab bust happened or who was involved.
“It is sad and scary. It’s not something that I’d like to see anyone get involved with. Hopefully they can find their way out of it,” the woman said.
Court records said Cragle was out on bail for charges connected to a meth lab bust near Sweet Valley in April 2012.
