Justin Hill Accused Of Making Meth In Park Bathroom

Volusia County Jail

Police in Volusia County, Florida, have arrested a man for allegedly making meth in the bathroom of a local park.

Justin Hill, 20, of New Smyrna Beach, was arrested last Tuesday and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, manufacture of methamphetamine and possession of cannabis.

Hill's alleged bathroom meth lab was discovered when a construction worker called 911 around 8 a.m. to report smoke emanating from the men’s bathroom at Detwiler Park.

The worker said the smoke smelled like chemicals and acid. He said he saw a man running from the area carrying a bag, the Daytona News-Journal reports.

When investigators arrived, they found remnants of a one-pot meth lab in the bathroom, according to the Miami Herald.

The park restroom wasn't seriously damaged, but evidence found at the scene led police to Hill, who is also a suspect in a home burglary, CBS Miami reports.

Hill was later released on $56,000 bail.

Jail records show Hill has been arrested six times since September 2012, including on felony battery, battery on an emergency medical care provider, and burglary of an unoccupied conveyance.
