This is dedicated to Travis Holappa who was kidnapped, tortured and murdered on July 25, 2004 in Northern Minnesota. This was all due to meth. I am Travis' mother and I wish to make this devastation turn into a better thing by educating and exposing the truth about meth, the dangers, and the deadly consequences it brings about to individuals and communities.

I want to do what I can to educate people about what is going on around the world with the meth problem. I want people to know about it BEFORE they even get the idea to want to try it. It is a dangerous drug and will ruin your life as well as all those who love you. I am on a mission on behalf of my only son, Travis.

One Arrested In Bensenville Meth Lab Bust (Illinois)

(CBS) BENSENVILLE, Ill. One person was arrested on Tuesday in Bensenville when members of the DuPage County Sheriff’s multi-jurisdictional Tactical narcotics unit (TNT) assisted by the Illinois State Police Methamphetamine Response Team, closed down a methamphetamine finishing operation.

Finishing labs refine manufactured raw methamphetamine, changing it from a powdery substance into crystal meth.

The execution of a search warrant led to the discovery of the lab. The house, in the 4N400 block of Ridgeland in Bensenville, had been under surveillance for weeks after a concerned citizen had given authorities a tip.

Homeowner Lawrence Schoenbeck was taken into custody and authorities seized 77 grams of crystal meth, which has a street value of about $15,000. Also seized were 30 grams of the date rape drug GHB, drug paraphernalia, a 2003 Toyota 4-Runner, and some cash.

Schoenbeck has been charged with four counts of Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver, a class X felony. He is currently out on bond and is scheduled to appear in court on March eighth.
