Meth bust in Caldwell County

Law enforcement authorities have busted a meth lab in Caldwell County. The Charlotte Observer has the story here. Investigators say they believe the drugs were being cooked several times a week at the house, and they say informants told them teen-agers were coming to the residence several times a week, apparently to buy drugs. In another meth-releated story, WFAE's Lisa Miller and Jarred Bean report that the federal program that pays for cleaning up meth labs is out of money, in part because of Congress' failure to pass a federal budget.
