Suspected meth manufacturer turns himself in

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) -- Arresting a suspected methamphetamine cook has never been easier for police.

On May 23, Andrew Masdon, 29, came to the Grand Junction Police Department front lobby and told officers he was a meth manufacturer who wanted to turn himself in, according to an arrest affidavit.

In a backpack he had brought along, he said he had the chemicals and components he had used in former meth "cooks."

Masdon explained to Western Colorado Drug Task Force officers that he had done more than 100 "cooks" as he moved between Mesa County and Alabama. Since arriving in Grand Junction on April 3, he had completed six "cooks," each producing between four and five grams of meth, the affidavit says.

He said he made the meth in a Candlewood trailer in Clifton, an apartment on Harris Road in Grand Junction, a storage unit in Clifton and a vehicle while he was driving around town. According to the affidavit, all the meth supplies came from Wal-Mart.

After Masdon thoroughly explained how he made meth, and after investigators searched the supplies in his backpack, he was taken into custody. He had told investigators he came in voluntarily because he needed help.
