CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia law enforcement officials are seizing methamphetamine labs at a record pace in 2013.

They have seized 200 meth labs to date, nearly approaching the 288 they shuttered in all of last year.

The Charleston Gazette (http://bit.ly/17fX4oa) says law enforcement is on a pace to seize about 570 labs this year, despite a new law intended to slow the proliferation of meth labs.

The size of meth labs has gotten smaller as the number of busts has spiked.

Still, the smaller meth-making operations are just as toxic as larger, traditional labs.
