|One night while working a very busy swing shift, I got a call from a male subject who wanted to report an ongoing/chronic drug problem at a particular location and he wanted to remain anonymous. Well, we normally transfer these calls to our consolidated narcotics unit and they can handle it on a priority basis that they set for themselves. Of course, at this time of night, my caller would have gotten an answering machine at CNU, so I figured maybe I should question a little bit further. After about 5 minutes, I determined that we were going to need to send officers out, because now my caller was telling me about some child
||abuse that was also going on. Obviously, we had to go check on the kids. I figured that was the most important part of the call, so I entered it as a welfare check on the kids and only mentioned the narcotics as extra info/officer safety. When the officers got on scene, they almost immediately asked for the bomb squad, a supervisor, the fire department, and the on-call detectives! Turns out that what they had was a very large meth lab at the house! Oh, and the guy who wanted to remain anonymous...he wouldn't give me his name, address, or phone #, but he was willing to give me his social security number!
