Clandestine lab operators are not the mad scientists whose genius keeps them pent up in the laboratory contemplating elaborate formulas and mixing exotic chemicals. In fact, their equipment is usually simple, their chemicals household products, and their education basic. Most of the time the elements at the scene are perfectly legal to sell and own. It is only in the combination of all these elements that the lab becomes the scene of a criminal operation.

Forensic Investigation of Clandestine Laboratories guides you, step-by-step, through the process of recognizing these illegal manufacturing operations. Then it shows you how to prove it in the courtroom. In non-technical language this book details:

How to recognize a clandestine lab
How to process the site of a clandestine lab
How to analyze evidence in the examination laboratory
What to derive from the physical evidence
How to present the evidence in court

The identification and investigation of a clandestine lab, and the successful prosecution of the perpetrators, is a team effort. A collaboration of law enforcement, forensic experts, scientists, and criminal prosecutors is required to present a case that definitively demonstrates how a group of items with legitimate uses are being used to manufacture an illegal controlled substance. Providing an understanding of how the pieces of the clandestine lab puzzle fit together, this book outlines the steps needed to identify and shut down these operations, as well as successfully prosecute the perpetrators.

    This review is from: Forensic Investigation of Clandestine Laboratories (Hardcover)

    If you are law enforcement and need information on all aspects of Clan Labs, this book is for you. I have a stack of DEA manuals and NES guide books and this beats them all, combined. From production to prosecution this book has it all. It’s a little pricey but worth every dollar. Check out the “look inside” link. That’s only a peek at what this excellent book has to offer.
