ANOTHER DRAMA-FILLED WEEK IN THE SOUTH CAROLINA CAPITAL
|| By FITSNEWS || U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents and members of the Columbia, S.C. police department (CPD) are investigating the discovery of multiple containers said to be involved in the illegal manufacture of narcotics.
Oh, and another bomb threat …
According to a tweet from Drinking Ticket, law enforcement agents surrounding a building at 1225 Laurel Street in downtown Columbia, S.C. after discovering five 55-gallon drums containing Piperidine behind the building. That address is listed as the location of the University of South Carolina’s technology incubator.
Hmmmm … what sort of technology have these kids been “incubating,” we wonder?
Piperidine is frequently used in the black market manufacture of phencyclidine – or PCP (a.k.a. “Angel Dust”), a hallucinogen that can be used in a variety of different forms.
In addition to the discovery of the containers, a bomb threat was reportedly called in to the building police were surrounding.
So far, all anyone is saying is that the containers are related to an Atlanta, Georgia drug case.
UPDATE: Well, well … here’s one theory.
