SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Indiana residents can now use a state website to find out whether a home they intend to buy was ever used a methamphetamine lab.

A new law that goes into effect July 1 requires properties where meth labs were once located to be registered and listed on an online database.

The South Bend Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1lHW9Vm ) that the database is already up and running at www.meth.in.gov . Locations linked to cases dating back to 2007 can be viewed in a list or on an interactive map.

The website lists the type of property involved, type of meth lab that was there and what type of structures were used to house equipment. Some listings also contain state police reports.

Indiana State Police say meth information is a matter of public health.
