SELLS, Ariz. (AP) — Federal authorities say a firefighter on the Tohono O’odham Nation in southern Arizona has been arrested for allegedly operating a methamphetamine lab at his mobile home in Sells. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials say 36-year-old Stephen Folson admitted to possessing and manufacturing meth after several federal agents searched his home south of Tucson. Court documents show Folson was being investigated because multiple agencies had leads that pointed to suspicious overseas purchases and shipments spanning several months. According to the documents, Folson was seen by agents picking up a package from a post office that had a large amount of allergy and sinus medication _ ingredients commonly used to make meth.
