Derek J. Haines, 24, of Waukesha, Wisconsin turned to the Internet like some many people trying to better themselves. Haines’ problem was downloading instructions of how to build a meth lab and then taking the print out on a shopping trip to the local hardware store — where he was arrested.
An employee saw the print out and called police, which found automobile starter fluid and concrete cleaner in his car — both were stolen from the story. They also found ritalin tablets and gasoline in his freezer. Police say that Haines expressed relief that he was caught because he was afraid that he was going to blow himself up in the process of making methamphetamine.
He is charged with maintaining a drug house, delivery of prescription medication, bail jumping, theft, illegal possession of prescription drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia.
