HUDSON, TX (KTRE) - The Angelina County Sheriff's Office is looking for a Huntington man suspected in connection to a mobile meth lab, found within eyesight of a Hudson school.

According to Sgt. Allen Hill, deputies served a search warrant at a residence on State Highway 94, near Hudson Primary School and found components of a "shake and bake" meth lab in a vehicle on the property.

Hill said "shake and bake" is a dangerous way to make meth, by putting the ingredients in a bottle and shaking it up. He said if a person is not careful, the bottle can turn into a bomb.

"Using meth of any kind is crazy, to make it, even the red phosphorus, they tend to burn stuff down," Hill said. "This one, it's a gamble, it's a roll of the dice. Either you're going to succeed or you're going to blow yourself up. If that thing malfunctions, you've got a flame-thrower or a bomb, that's your two options."

Deputies found 1,800 grams which tested positive for meth.

An arrest warrant has been issued for Cory Paul Norman, 21, based on the investigation into today's findings. Once arrested, Norman will be charged with possession of certain chemicals with intent to manufacture, Hill said.
