Meth house tracking is incomplete in Indiana

The tracking of homes that formerly were used for methamphetamine production in Indiana is incomplete several years after the state began requiring counties to keep such records.

The Journal Gazette reports Saturday that meth has been a problem in the state for more than a decade, but the public records on meth houses only go back a few years. It's uncertain how many such houses exist.

Indiana's Methamphetamine Protection Act of 2005 required ingredients such as pseudoephedrine and ephedrine to be placed behind the counters of retail stores and pharmacies or kept under video surveillance.

The act also required law enforcement agencies that take down meth labs to report the addresses and some details to county health departments.
