MISSOURI (KFVS) -

Missouri is no longer number one, as far as meth lab seizures go.

However, law enforcement still has a long way to go in the fight against methamphetamine.

Indiana is now tops when it comes to meth lab seizures with almost 1,800 in 2013. Tennessee was second with more than 1,600 lab busts and Missouri had almost 1,500 seizures.

The Missouri Highway Patrol added up the number of working labs, equipment seizures and dumpsites to get the stats.
