. The behavior shocked me when we began getting meth cases. It was a whole different animal then drugs cases we were used to. Back then I was on the other end of the arrest and conducting pre-sentence investigations for the court. Reading the arrest reports made my hair stand. It had the same effect on many in LE. The behavior was something we had only seen in someone having a psychotic break or episode. Interviewing the person in jail a week or so later was another shocker because the before and after behavior were night and day and very different from cases involving other drugs because of the extreme behavior. Not all were violent cases but still indicative of meths effect on the brain. One case the a man forced his way through a door when the (random) home owner answered by opening the door only a crack. Once in he did nothing but walk into the kitchen in a zombie state. The home owners yelling and screaming made him run out. Police found him hiding in the bushes. He had taken his clothes off and was profusely sweating from the drug. Another similar case: (random) homeowners returned and found a man hiding behind their couch in a heightened state of paranoia. Another found a man taking a bubble bath. All spur of the moment, random, and no motive what so ever. Two meth cases involving violence will always stick in my mind. Both because of the horrific violence but one because I had supervised this person years before but violated and ended up gwhere a mother and daughter had there home randomly broke into, were beaten & raped, strangled then set on fire. No reason. TY!
