Norwalk Police Chief Dave Light has seen the first-hand impact of using methamphetamine. He saw a woman who admitted to using meth for the last two to three months.
"You could see the visual effects on her, with the scabs on her face," Light said.
Samantha J. Reed, 32, of 15 Fruen St., was arrested after Friday's meth lab fire on Bouscay Avenue. She was charged with trafficking in heroin in connection with a separate investigation.
"She just happened to be there," said Detective Sgt. Seth Fry, who assisted Detective Sgt. Jim Fulton with the investigation involving Reed.
"She admitted to using the meth that was cooked at the location," Fry said.
The police chief considers meth "one of the most dangerous drugs out there."
"Even more than heroin," Light said.
