A Hillsboro man who had been asking police to test his meth for strength was arrested on Monday, Jan. 20, after he allegedly dropped off an envelope of the suspected drug at the Hillsboro Police Department.
"That's a situation we have never encountered before," Hillsboro Police Chief Randy Leetham said.
William A. Blechle, 32, of Hillsboro, faces a felony charge of possession of meth less than five grams. Leetham said he also has Missouri and Kansas addresses.
Blechle had stopped in the police department several times during the previous week to discuss various conspiracy theories, and also request that police "test the metabolic compound and the strength of his methamphetamine," the chief said.
Just before 9 p.m. on Monday, officers doing paperwork at the police department heard a knock on the door. It was Blechle, who handed police an envelope, Leetham said. "When asked what was inside of it, Blechle's response was 'none of his concern,' and he turned and walked away."
Police opened the envelope and found a crystal-like substance suspected to be meth, and quickly stopped Blechle as he was walking out of the parking lot and placed him in custody.
