The Buxton United Methodist Church had a meth-lab built in the children’s playroom. Someone in the church noticed a smell coming from a playroom closet and called police. The meth-lab was set up in the church’s closet.
The man in custody is Matthew Anderson (33) and is the alleged suspect in the crime.
Anderson is currently in jail on cash bail of $7,500. He made his initial court appearance on Friday, a day after his arrest. The church facility has a sign that says, “Due to recent criminal behavior on our property, services are temporarily canceled.”
The church building must be thoroughly cleaned by Hazmat-trained professionals before it can host public service again.
Building a meth lab in the United Methodist Church nursery is a deplorable action. It is, however, only slightly less offensive than what ordinarily happens there are a weekly basis during ‘worship.’
It is unknown if this incident will change the UMC’s “Open Minds, Open Hearts, Open Doors” policy.
