Jul 30, 2012

Narcotics investigators in Franklin County, Mo., may soon have their own TV show.

The Washington Missourian reports that a new reality TV program called "Methbusters" will feature the Franklin County officers.

Franklin County has been among the leading counties in the nation for meth lab busts for more than a decade. The commander of the narcotics unit, Jason Grellner, is a nationally recognized advocate for tougher anti-meth laws.

Plans call for the TV crew to be in Franklin County for three weeks of filming, starting the week of July 30th. They'll tag along as officers investigate meth lab activities and arrest suspects.

Grellner says the series is expected to air on several cable TV channels. He isn't sure when the series will be shown.
