NASHVILLE, Mich. (WOOD) — A suspicious odor coming from inside a Barry County gas station may have actually been from rotting fruit, not meth.
Deputies were called to the Shell Gas Station on S. Main Street in Nashville Thursday to investigate a suspicious odor coming from containers which had been returned in the can/bottle return machine.
The clerk believed the returned bottles smelled like “meth” and also reported feeling sick from the smell.
When authorities arrived, they also smelled a strong chemical odor and used SCBA equipment to confirm the air was hazardous.
However after further testing, the containers and air came back negative for meth components.
Deputies said the smell may have been a result of some rotting fruit in a receptacle.
