|Brighton Feed Store
- Recently the North Metro Task Force received a phone call from the
Brighton Feed Store located at 370 North Main Street in Brighton,
CO asking what they could do to help reduce the manufacturing of methamphetamine.
They advised that they believed some people were purchasing products
that contained iodine (a necessary ingredient for manufacturing methamphetamine)
from their store that were used for manufacturing and they were looking
for assistance in creating a method that would limit the purchases
and identify the purchasers. They wanted to help protect the community
and the children any way they could.
The North Metro Task Force met with management of the feed store and
discussed how they could help in the overall reduction of methamphetamine
The Brighton Feed Store has removed all but one bottle of the 7% tincture
of iodine from the shelves and posted a noticed advising customers
that they would need to contact management if they wanted more and
advised them that a photo ID was required to purchase the iodine.
Additionally, all of the crystal iodine is behind closed cabinets
and the rest of the 7% tincture of iodine is also behind counters.
The notice on the shelf is posted in English and in Spanish and the
feed store is keeping a log of the sales.
The North metro Task Force would like to thank the Brighton Feed Store
for their help and cooperation in our efforts to reduce the manufacturing
of methamphetamine in Adams and Broomfield Counties. This act alone
will protect numerous innocent families and children within our community.
