Domestic call leads deputies to possible meth lab in Palm Harbor

PALM HARBOR — A call about domestic violence led deputies on Monday to discover what they believe to be a meth lab in a Palm Harbor home.

Pinellas County sheriff's deputies said they responded to 2680 Peterborough Court about 3:45 p.m. after a man allegedly threw chemicals at his live-in girlfriend.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Cecelia Barreda said deputies were greeted by a chemical odor. One deputy was taken to a local hospital after having an adverse reaction to the smell. He was later released.

By evening, the agency's narcotics detectives had been called to the scene to investigate what Barreda said was a suspected meth lab operation.

The woman who had chemicals thrown at her was not injured. Police are not identifying her at this time.

The man, identified as 36-year-old Shiloh Sladon, was arrested on one felony count of domestic battery with strangulation, Barreda said.

The investigation is ongoing, she said.
