Meth lab registration bill signed into lawby Gov. Pence Press Release on June 18, 2014
Indianapolis, IN- In conjunction with Governor Pence’s ceremonial signing of House Bill 1141 the Indiana State Police unveiled a new link on the meth website. The link lists properties that have previously been identified by law enforcement as the location of a clandestine lab.
This site provides the user with the date of seizure, county, street address, type of lab and location of the lab on the property listed. In addition, labs seized in vehicles will have the vehicle identification number listed if the lab was seized after December 31, 2012. Only labs that have been reported to the Indiana State Police either through an ISP criminal incident report or via EPIC 143 report submission by another police agency will be listed on the website. The address lists have specific timelines and delisting requirements under HB 1141. If the address fits within the statutory timelines, users will be able to download the ISP Occurrence Report and the Indiana Department of Environmental Management’s Certificate of Illegal Drug Lab Cleanup submitted for a particular property.
If it has been disclosed through a real estate transaction that a clan lab was on the property for sale but it is not listed on the website, contact the ISP Meth Suppression Section at 317-234-4591 or within Indiana 1-877-MSS-METH. ISP can determine if the property was delisted after cleanup or if a lab was never reported to the Indiana State Police for that location. Occurrence Reports will be available from ISP and Cleanup Certificates will still be available from IDEM for those delisted properties.
“This project has been over a year in the making, and we are pleased that Representative Wendy McNamara and Senator Randy Head worked with us and the other entities involved to pass this legislation that protects Hoosiers from the dangers posed by meth lab contamination.” stated ISP Meth Suppression Commander F/Sgt. Niki Crawford. “This is a victory for everyone involved.”
To visit the website go to www.meth.in.gov. Inquiries regarding the website should be directed to F/Sgt. Niki Crawford at firstname.lastname@example.org or (317) 234-4591.
Meth lab registration bill signed into law
STATEHOUSE – House Enrolled Act (HEA) 1141, co-authored by State Representative Dave Ober (R-Albion), which addresses properties that have been affected by methamphetamine, was signed into law by Governor Pence.
“Prospective home buyers should have all the facts before they choose a home,” said Rep. Ober. “This law provides new consumer protections so Hoosier homebuyers know what they are getting before they sign on the dotted line.”
The new law will provide transparency for the public to know whether or not a home has been the site where methamphetamine was either manufactured or dumped. This information will be maintained by the Indiana State Police on a website that will list all properties that have been in contact with meth, even those that are already taken off of the public list.
Buyer’s will be able to see within the buyer’s agreement or realtor’s statement, if a home has a history with meth and whether or not that property has been properly decontaminated.
“Hoosiers deserve the peace of mind knowing that their home was properly decontaminated and now safe for their family,” said Rep. Ober.
