A Casper man has entered a plea in court regarding charges that he was running a meth lab near a school.

Twenty-five year old Steven Salazar, has pleaded not guilty to one charge of running a clandestine laboratory, one charge of possession of lab equipment with the intent to use for a clandestine laboratory, and one charge of possession of a controlled substance – liquid meth.

Police investigators say in middle June, officers along with special agents with the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation, executed a search warrant at a house on Spruce Street, which was within 500 feet of Natrona County High School.

They found numerous paraphernalia associated with a meth lab and meth use.

When questioned, Salazar admitted to making methamphetamine at the house on at least 12 occasions.

He is being held on $25,000 bond awaiting trial, and could face up to 25 years in prison on each of the clandestine laboratory operations charges if convicted.

A co-defendant, 48-year old Kim Thomas, is accused of providing materials for the meth lab operation.

He is facing similar charges and is also awaiting trial.
