50 taped bottles containing flammable, corrosive materials have been found along river banks in Pitkin, Eagle and Garfield counties. If you come across one, don't touch it. Report it to authorities.

Yes that's true but they're a handy place to dump the waste and that crap can kill ya.

Wow. Actual Police work pays off. Now if we could just get Josephine County to address the smash and grab routine at Graves Creek we'd all be better off.

Asshat tweaker. If he doesn't spend the rest of his life in prison, his community restitution should include a year or so cleaning up the Roaring Fork.

Sorry that is a nice looking asshat. Turns out the asshat in question didn't have meth in his house, they are still trying to figure out what was in the bottles and why he was dumping them in the river. The rest of my statement still applies. Maybe he should be sentenced to clean up the river WEARING the asshat!
