Washington Man Busted For Meth Pipe In Court

From KATU.com -

Kelso, Washington - Steven Todd Campbell, 51, was out on bail on charges of possession of methamphetamine and obstruction of justice.  He was required to appear for a hearing on these charges.  The Cowlitz County sheriff’s office said when Campbell was asked to dump the contents of his pockets into a tray at the security checkpoint, he took out a three-inch pipe coated with brown residue and covered it with a piece of paper.  The deputy working the scanner recognized it as a pipe used to smoke meth and arrested Campbell.  Campbell was sent back to jail on another possession of methamphetamines charge.
