Camper suspected of operating meth lab in Cape Cod busted

Cape Cod police recently arrested a male camper on the suspicion that he was operating a methamphetamine laboratory near a hospital, an article of the Boston Globe reported on December 5.

Reports revealed the officers apprehended 31-year-old Stewart Catchings on December 2 because they suspected him of trying to evade arrest after they discovered a makeshift meth lab. The officers in the area knew individuals sought temporary shelter to in the former cranberry bogs and went to inform them of trespassing violations. Authorities discovered a much bigger tent in an isolated place. Upon inspection, authorities discovered different devices, chemicals, and bottles they believed were used in the manufacturing of illegal drugs. A $10,000 bond was set to Catchings upon booking and he was scheduled for a court hearing.
