Lab Dump Leads to Fire and Charges

A charge of unlawfully disposing of hazardous waste was filed against a Florida man July 30 in Sequoyah County District Court in Sallisaw. Jessie Dean Mosby, 34, of Palm Bay, Florida is accused of disposing of an alleged drug lab in a dumpster at Downtown Apartments in Sallisaw. The dumpster then caught fire, which attracted police and the fire department. A witness gave Sallisaw police the tag number from the vehicle driven by the man who placed the materials in the dumpster, which led police to the home of the vehicle owner and Mosby. Mosby told police he was looking for tools to repair a lawn mower but instead found materials normally used in the manufacture of methamphetamine. He told police he saw that some materials had started to melt, and he decided to dump the materials in the closest dumpster, which was at the apartment complex. Mosby was arrested and booked into the city jail without incident, police reported. Mosby pleaded not guilty to the charge on July 30 and his case is on Judge Larry Langley's disposition docket August 20. By Sally Maxwell, Senior News Director
