Hazmat cleans up Sioux Falls meth bust

Posted: Updated:

A Hazmat crew is cleaning the remnants of a weekend meth bust in Sioux Falls.

Police were called to a duplex in the 800-block of South Main Avenue at about 10:45 p.m. Saturday. Police said the person who called smelled a strong chemical coming from the neighbor's home. She told police she was concerned because she had heard her neighbor made meth in the past.

Police arrived to find the front door open and said they could smell the odor as well. The resident of the duplex in question came outside and spoke with police. Police said he allowed them to go inside to make sure everything was okay.

However, while they were inside the home police found a syringe with meth remnants. The homeowner denied knowing anything about the syringe. Police also found a dollar bill and straw with meth remnants.

The homeowner and the other person inside the home at the time were arrested for possession of a controlled substance. Police found the homeowner was on parole, and after a call to the suspect's parole officer police were allowed to search the rest of the home.

During the search police found in the trash items consistent with making or manufacturing meth.

Homeowner Gregory Smith, 27, and Curtis Christensen, 47, both of Sioux Falls were charged with possession of a controlled substance, inhabiting a room where drugs are kept, possession of paraphernalia and manufacture of a controlled drug.
