Parts of River Road were blocked Wednesday morning while Columbus Police investigated two discarded soda bottles that were used to create methamphetamine.

Capt. Gil Slouchick said members of the Special Operations Unit Meth Team were working on rendering the scene safe at about 11:30 a.m. after two bottles used to make meth were found on River Road. The bottles were found between Mobley Road and Bradley Park Drive by an inmate who was working with a prison detail crew.

"Once they render everything safe, (the Meth Team) will call the GBI's clean up crew to come out there and take everything away," Slouchick said.

Police have named no suspects at this time. The bottles were most likely thrown out of a car window after the individuals completed the meth making process, Slouchick said.
