Washington City Administrator, Brent Hinson, said that through a criminal investigation it became evident that methamphetamine had been manufactured in one of the apartments at the Goncho Apartment building.
Hinson explained that the unit was tested and came back positive for a high methamphetamine residue level, which led to testing other apartments in the building. Results showed that much of the building had been contaminated.
The building is now vacant while the methamphetamine effects are eradicated. Hinson said the building also needs to be updated to meet building and fire code.
The city is currently working with the owner, who is addressing the issues to make the building habitable and according to Hinson, his insurance company is covering the methamphetamine issues.
