Longmont, USA: A Colorado man is currently facing drug charges after he told the police that he was attempting to create a healthy meth substance with acai berries inside a meth lab that was inside his garage.
The garage search did not reveal any methamphetamine.
49-year-old was arrested on suspicion of controlled substance possession, possession of drug paraphernalia, and unlawful distribution, manufacturing, and dispensing a controlled substance.
He was released on Wednesday by the police on a $15,000 bond.
The Longmont Police Officers said that they received a tip, which includes images of the said meth lab.
Rogers was seen leaving the house in a pickup truck on Tuesday afternoon and was stopped.
He acknowledged that he had meth inside a pipe in the center console of the truck.
The 49-year-old also told the police that he was making a healthy meth substance at his house because there were acai berries in it.
Booking documents did not suggest if Rogers had an attorney that could speak on his behalf.
Investigators did find a berry-like substance inside the lab, however, there is no way that someone could make healthy methamphetamine.
Longmont Deputy Chief Jeff Satur said:
No amount of meth is safe, whether it has a berry in it or not. It’s a highly addictive, life-destroying drug.
Investigators said no meth was found inside the garage.
However, authorities said that Rogers had the tools to make up to an ounce of meth every day.
The police will set the duplex where Rogers living for meth contamination.
Rogers is scheduled for a formal filing of charges on Friday in the Boulder District Court.
