DYERSVILLE — One man was taken into custody after a raid Wednesday by the Dubuque County Drug Task Force.

Members searched a home in the 600 block of Second Street NE in Dyersville and found items commonly used to make methamphetamine, according to a news release.

Authorities say the items discovered are part of the “One Pot” method of making the drug. The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection says the process involves combining and mixing the ingredients in a single container, which can later be disposed. The resulting waste is full of chemicals that are potentially explosive and poisonous.

The task force arrested 26-year-old Kevin Deutmeyer and he was charged with Possession of Precursors with Intent to Manufacture, a Class D felony that is punishable by up to 5 years in prison.
