Deputies: Man brings meth pipe to meth hearing, gets more meth charges

KELSO, Wash. - He'll be back.

Deputies said a man who was coming to court for a hearing at the Cowlitz County Hall of Justice was arrested after he put a meth pipe in a tray at the security checkpoint Tuesday.

Steven Todd Campbell, 51, was out on bail on charges of possession of methamphetamine and obstruction of justice.

The Cowlitz County sheriff's office said when Campbell was asked to dump the contents of his pockets into the tray, he took out a three-inch pipe coated with brown residue and covered it with a piece of paper.

The deputy working the scanner recognized it as a pipe used to smoke meth and arrested Campbell.

Campbell was sent back to jail on another possession of methamphetamines charge.
