Each week, the Missourian highlights a government record that is available to the public. Open records help people keep government in check and help them better understand how government affects their lives.

For a complete list of Show Me the Records, go to

The records: The Missouri State Highway Patrol’s data of the cumulative totals of methamphetamine seizures occurring in each separate county in Missouri since October 2010. The statistics were extracted from incidents entered into the National Clandestine Laboratory Seizure System.

Why you’d want them: For the eighth straight year Missouri has led the nation in the number of meth lab seizures in the nation. This map is a breakdown of how many meth lab seizures occurred in each county in the state.

Where you get the records: Go to, then download the map from the tab that says, “2010 Statewide Lab Incidents.”

How much it will cost: The information is free.
