Posted: Updated:

RIDGELAND, MS (WLBT) - Forty four year old Merwin Purser was taken into custody Thursday at his home in Ridgeland. Agents with the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics and Madison County deputies found this shake and bake meth lab inside the house at 7116 Old Canton Road.

 Agents also found a receipt where purser bought pseudoephedrine to make the meth. MBN Director Marshall Fisher says some of the material was so volatile it could have caused a flash fire putting everyone in the neighborhood in danger.
